[SciPy-User] Suggest moving curve_fit from minpack to top level

Dear Scipy users,

I would like to suggest moving the curve_fit wrapper function from the
minpack module to the top level and possibly renaming it to "fit".
So you could access it using:

import scipy as sp

Curve fitting is one of the most important tasks in scientific
analysis and most people starting with scipy struggle to find this
(undocumented) function, especially when moving to scipy from gnuplot
which has a basic fit function that performs the same task.
What are your thoughts about this?

Kind regards,

Pim Schellart
