The problem is in distribution. For many users, installing a new
library is not easy (computing cluster, company regulations...). And
this assuming the alternative library is held to the same quality
standards as Numpy.

Another argument is that this should only be living in Scipy, that is,
after all, quite standard; but it requires a FORTRAN compiler, that is
quite a big dependency.
