There is a module called convertcode.py (in scipy/base) that will make 
nearly all of the required changes.   We used it to convert all of scipy 
over and it was pretty effective.

I can understand an installed base may find it more difficult to 
switch.  That's why we are working hard to get scipy core out of beta as 
soon as possible.  Immediately, we are really looking for people who  
are willing to run their code so we can track down remaining problems.
