I see (on closer inspection) that Christoph only has 64bit SciPy for
the Intel MKL version of 64bit NumPy (not the plain version), which
is presumably what you are refering to? Is this down to some problem
in SciPy or NumPy (or both)? I'm not familiar with the problem.

Of course - Intel's licensing must be respected there.
