Regarding nd_image, I would guess that it should be an addon, or go  
at some point in scipy. However, even though I am the author, I am  
most likely not going to support it outside numarray. I do realize  
that at some point numarray may be retired, but I  have not decided  
yet if I will be using/supporting nd_image beyond that point. It  
would be nice to have a common code-base with the numarray version so  
that all can profit from any bug-fixes that I am still doing in the  
numarray version.
