Yes, the GSL sounds terrific and has a very detailed manual, but its
license might be a problem. SciPy is distributed under a BSD like
license so i dont think it would be possible to use a GPL'd library
and extend it to be used in a non-GPL framework. However, IANAL, and
am pretty ignorant of all the ramifications of all these licenses. :(
