Hi Rex,

Now that you've gone through your odyssey trying to numpy/scipy w/  
this particular combo (SuSE/MKL/IntelCC), now would be a great time  
to whip up wiki page ... you know .. for the documentation ;-)

That's not so bad, though, is it? I'd also be interested in seeing  
some more benchmarks though .. I wonder if there is a standard  
benchmarking suite somewhere ..

Congrats on completing the gauntlet,
