Comment:
Note that there has been discussion of a scipy.diff package:
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/ticket/1510
http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.scientific.devel/15790
When that happens, removing {{{derivative}}} would make sense. I'm not
really opposed to improving it now, but it's probably not the best use of
time. Even now it would make more sense to refer people to numdifftools or
Algopy.
