Completely agree.  When I first came to Python it threw me that I was 
having to find randomly named packages to do what I needed - and 
still does.  Not wishing to start a flamewar, but a CPAN style 
structure is a lot easier to find your way around...

As to suggestions, I've still not grasped what's in scipy_core, and 
googling as someone suggested turned up a thread with people agreeing 
to rename scipy_core to numpy, which makes sense.
