It would help a lot to start to develop some document
which would describe what do we want from this new package
(i.e. requirements).

This can be a good basis for further discussion.

It should probably include as well on some general

scilab - to name the few) and what makes them inadequate
enough to justify development of

One basic reason - at least for this group - is lack of
Python front-end (:-).
