[pypy-dev] Questions Regarding Scipy in Pypy (Not a Feature Request)

I know there is no current plan to implement scipy in pypy, but searching
the PyPy website, I was not able to find the reason.

If it is not to be included as a feature due to lack of interest or
developer time, I am offering to begin rewriting scipy in pure python (I
have quite a bit of free time to do this).
If it has been discussed and actively excluded from pypy, I would like to
know that before I waste too much time rewriting it.

I have an active interest in being able to use some modules which depend on
scipy while using the PyPy interpreter (especially pyBrain). I have seen
the hack on the pypy blog:


I could simply use the hack myself, but unless there's a reason not too, I
think it'd be nice to have scipy available as a pure python module (perhaps
called scipypy in the same manner as numpy).
