This sounds great. A few others I usually put in a fresh install.


I also like the idea of having (configurable) default imports (**with
namespaces**), though I'd think we might discuss what exactly gets imported
by default and what the standards will be. Everyone has different needs of
course, but I'm sure there's some commonality. Mine looks something like

import numpy as np
import statsmodels.api as sm
import pandas
import sklearn
from scipy import stats, optimize
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
