I hope that in such circumstances Gerald will take the extra 
step of informing the author of the Octave function of his
translation and, as a matter of politeness as well as of
possible licensing issues, request permission to release
this Python code under the BSD license.  Ideally SciPy will
have some arrangement for archiving such permissions.
