Wonderful progress--I can't thank you enough for the work you are doing 
on this.

I initially tried to build from the tarball, but ran into missing pieces:

compile options: '-Iscipy/base/include -Ibuild/src/scipy/base 
-Iscipy/base/src -I/usr/include/python2.4 -c'
gcc: lapack_lite/blas_lite.c
gcc: lapack_lite/blas_lite.c: No such file or directory
gcc: no input files

I then installed from the rpm (on a Mandriva 2005 LE system) with no 
problems, and proceeded to poke around.  It looks great!

Bug: in function_base.py, there are four places where "nx" should be 
"_nx"; see attached diff.

Also attached is a diff for arraymethods, to fix what look to me like 
erroneous docstrings for the reshape and resize methods.  The present 
docstrings indicate that reshape makes the change in place, and resize 
returns a new array, but in both cases the opposite is true--reshape 
returns a reshaped copy, and resize returns None.
