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
