I haven't been following this very closely, but can you remind me if we
are talking about a scikit which could be released under the GPL, or
something that would be released under a BSD license. The reason I ask
this question is that Octave is GPL, and to write BSD-license coded
inspired by their code I think you would need either to do some white
room engineering, or ask for special permission to the authors. Don't
trust my opinion too much, I am license expert, but I just wanted to
point out this eventual snag.

Cheers,

Gaël
