Don't worry, there will be scipy.special. We're still in the process of
porting it. The porting is taking place in a branch on the SVN
repository. The process to install the full scipy would be to install
scipy_core and then install the full scipy, just as if they were
separate packages.

  svn co http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy/branches/newscipy/

I'm currently getting segfaults when trying to initialize the _cephes
module, however.
