That's probably a good idea.  Although there's a certain symmetry to the 
naming in SVN, I'm not wedded to it.   I think keeping it a package is a 
good idea for now so we can possibly move mtrand underneath it and get 
rid of lib from scipy_core.  I'm waiting for more feedback on that idea 
before doing anything though.
