I've been giving this some thought and reading more about the hough
transform. I'm new to image processing but I think I'm getting a better
understanding of how it works.

How about including a hough transform function in scipy? It seems like a
useful function to have in the image processing toolbox, and the line
detection seems fairly straightforward. Stefan's implementation already
looks like a great start.

Is this something that would be useful for others?
