I could try to make a new SciPy release this weekend.
Before then, though, I suggest we change the package name of nd_image.
Here was my proposal from a previous thread:

What do people think? At the very least we should remove the
underscore, so it's more consistent with linalg and fftpack (which
aren't lin_alg, fft_pack ;)
