Can we start by removing recipes that aren't useful anymore, links to
external sites (there are ~40 OpenOpt / FuncDesigner links for example) and
the list of all pages? That would cut down the Cookbook page to a more
manageable size immediately.

Then there will be some things left that can land in the numpy/scipy
tutorials, and some things for SciPy Central. Moving that content will
still be a lot of work, but much less than what it looks like now.
