A better and easier solution would be to use the hd5 support available
in recent matlabs: files exported this way can be imported by pytables,
and exported back. This is what I am using to plumb matlab and python
code, when I don't have (yet) a scipy replacement for some matlab codes.
hdf5 file format is an established standard, with a C library available
under a liberal license, which means many different applications can use it.
