> To recap, names suggested so far:

> PyScis - pronounced like pisces (potential confusion with PySCeS and
> PySci, two unrelated Python projects)
> Scipy-base
> Unipy
> MatSysPy
> Pyengine
> Pycraft
> List subscribers, what do you think? Does one of those names feel

I would suggest the name "hunter".  It's easily pronounced, and
connotes both the quest of scientific inquiry and the scientific
python community.  As a second suggestion, "orion" makes a slightly
more elliptical reference, but adds emphasis to the scientific nature
of the system.
