The aim of the Scipy Central is more or less to supersede the Cookbook
and the Topical Software wiki pages with something more friendly.

I believe constructive suggestions on how to improve it would be welcome.

Today, that link is the first hit, probably thanks to the Google juice
from the scipy.org front page.

I wonder why the leading hit is not the front page, though. Some
additional Google-fu is maybe required. The user pages probably should
have the noindex meta, as they're not so useful to have in search engines.
