I looked up the install location (/Library/Frameworks) of the binary python 
installer from python.org and put a symbolic link in there to the homebrew 
python directory (/usr/bin/Cellar/python/2.7.3/Frameworks/Python.framework).  
After that I was able to run the scipy binary 
(scipy-0.11.0-py2.7-python.org-macosx10.6.dmg).  I ran scipy.test('full') 
with this scipy and got basically the same results as when I installed scipy 
0.11.0 from source with "python setup.py install" (in both cases, the final line 
was: FAILED (KNOWNFAIL=15, SKIP=43, errors=1, failures=73)).  Is that result 
surprising?  I am using numpy 1.6.2 which I installed from source and which 
completes its tests without failure.
