I've been installing matplotlib/scipy/numpy from SVN and all seems to  
work fine -- numpy passes all tests, scipy does not (but this has  
been brought up in the list before). Honestly I haven't had much need  
to use scipy, as most of what I've been doing has been focused on  
numpy, so I can't say how bad those scipy test failures are (I  
believe there are 2).

Importing scipy.stats on my machine gives me no errors/warnings.

I'm running OS X.4.7 on a MacBook Pro.

You might think it's slightly more inconvenient working from svn, but  
I like it since numpy is constantly improving and I like to get those  
in my workspace asap.

Usually I don't have to update matplotlib, but I do every now and  
again just because it gives me something to do to take a break from  
my 'real work' and still makes me feel like I'm being productive :-)
