[Numpy-discussion] Re: Some missing linalg things (wanted: LU decomposition)

Upon further inspection I find that if I call 'from scipy import *' then
linalg.lu etc are defined.
But if I do anything else to import scipy like 'import scipy' or 'import
scipy as S' or 'from scipy import linalg', then lu, cg etc are not defined.

Why is that?

I can get at them without importing * by doing 'from scipy.linalg import
lu', but that's kind of odd to have to do that.
