Firstly David, hack was not intended as an insult. Thanks for pointing
me to stow I haven't heard of it before.

However. Could someone tell me how most SciPy developers work on the
library. Because stow still doesn't seem to get around the need to do
a build/install everytime one makes a modification to the library. I
look at online documentation for developers but I can't find any
clues. What's the best way to modify/test SciPy SVN?
