Well I don't really want to get into an argument about the definition of 
  'quick as it can be'.

I'm just trying to say that when people try the latest stable versions 
of 2 libraries that are closely coupled, they can be put off by warnings 
that appear out of the box. I'm pretty sure these warnings aren't 
important but seeing as I don't work on the internals of the libraries I 
don't know for sure. It looks like something that a quicker release 
schedule would fix and improve confidence amongst novice users of scipy.

That said I'm not the one building the releases, I was just curious how 
the releases are managed and whether people who work on scipy are aware 
of this. Probably most scipy developers aren't using the 0.5.2 version 
with these warnings.
