+1. Let's use the 'scipy stack' term as per the above.

I actually would vote for the 'extended' stack, that includes a few
packages that in the real world lots of people do use/need, like
sklearn/image. Here's a slightly outdated version of that:


Today I'd probably drop Mayav/PyTables (too specialized) but add Seaborn
(lightweight, easy, plays beautifully with pandas).

That would make a very compelling image out of the box, with minimal
additional complexity (while there's extension code in those, none of them
are harder than scipy itself).
