Look at the xxx module in the scipy sources. That's what I used recently to
guide myself into how to make a new project scipy-compatible, so that once
it's ready I can just drop it into the scipy sources without a single change.
Note the presence of special dirs and files for docstrings and unit tests:
this ensures that the automated scipy machinery picks them up for you.
