The idea was merge tools from scipy_core (that basically contains 
scipy_distutils and scipy_base) to Numeric3. The features of 
scipy_distutils have been stated in previous messages, some of these 
features will be used to build Numeric3. scipy_base contains enhancements 
to Numeric (now to be natural part of Numeric3) plus few useful python 
modules. Which scipy_core modules exactly should be included to Numeric3 
or left out of it, depends on how crusial are they for 
building/maintaining Numeric3 and whether they are useful in general for 
Numeric3 users. This is completely open for discussion. No part of 
scipy_core should be blindly copied to Numeric3 project.
