True, but I proposed this on the assumption that all scipy++ stuff gets
installed in the scipy directory (I may have missed a discussion on
installing scipy-core and scipy-full in two separate directories).

If my assumption is still valid, users would never have to do
import scipy++


PS: the svn repository can be called something else than scipy++, isn't it?
