Great!  Once it's a bit more tested,  you should make a page on the
wiki for it and announce it in the News page.  I could see this being
quite useful for many people.

In addition, wrapping numpy and matplotlib along with it would make
for a fantastic matlab-like-lite-in-a-box that could come in very
handy in many situations.
