Thank you for this development. I would like to analyse the sandbox 
branch but how can I do this without impacting my stable 
scikits.timeseries installation.
I can clone the git repository into an local directory but it seems to 
me that I need to install the the package using
   python setup.py install
And this will probably impact my stable scikits.timeseries no?
As I use Win-XP as OS it is recommended to use the pre-build installer 
(README.txt). What do you suggest me to do for testing and analysing 
your sandbox branch?
