[SciPy-user] Bayes net question

I'm willing to contribute (have done some Matlab -> Python porting but unfortunately for this project more IDL -> Python porting). I'm also pretty motivaterd re. seeing this happen as I've been reading some papers by Dimitris Margaritas that provide nice algorithms for feasibly testing independence for continuous variables which would be really helpful for me re. construction of useful Bayes nets. And I'd prefer to work on adding versions of these to a SciPy package (or scikit) - if there not already available in Kevin Murphy's toolbox that is (haven't looked at it in great detail yet). I'll figure out how to add my name to the wiki.

Stupid me, I did not even think about looking for the netlab license. 
Well, that's good. I started a proto-page on the scikits wiki.


People who have an interest in contributing could put their name, so 
that we can get an idea on how is willing to do somthing.
