But that is only useful when you know that you need to use package Y.
The cookbook should answer the question "How do I do X ?" (without any  
reference to specific packages).
For example, it should answer the question "How can I fit my data to a  
straight line?" - the answer would show several ways of doing that  
(with different scipy packages) and discuss the pros/cons of each way.
