In your experience, is this functionality enough to start a separate package, or should we try to include it somewhere else? Otherwise we could think of a new SciKit.
I confess to knowing no details about scikits so I don't know what the difference really is between a "new package" and a scikit. To do this properly you'd end up with a sizable body of code, and the potential dependency on Sympy would also suggest making it somewhat separate. I'd defer to others on that point, although I don't really see what other package it would naturally fit with because AD has multiple applications.
