[SciPy-user] keep scipy quiet

Shouldn't the default be to say nothing?
There was a similar discussion earlier regarding the
"numerix Numeric xx.x" message and the consensus was that unless 
something has gone wrong, there shouldn't be any screen output at all.
These messages can be a real pain, for instance when using pipes to 
communicate between processes.  Also, not everyone has root access, so 
can't make the suggested change. I think it would be better if this 
message was disabled in the scipy distribution.
