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.
