I don't have much to say Re: SciPy and this, but it's certainly worth
linking to from the SciPy wiki, if nothing else.  I guess the main thing
you'd want is to be able to do is evaluate GiNaC expressions using values
taken from Numpy arrays.

Are the SWIG wrappers currently better than the Boost::python wrappers
linked to from the main ginac page?  Since they're linked, the boost ones
seem to be more "official" than the swig ones.
