numpy and scipy questions are best asked on their lists, not here. There are a
number of people who know the capabilities of numpy and scipy through and
through, but most of them don't hang out on comp.lang.python.

scipy.optimize.leastsq() can be told to return the covariance matrix of the
estimated parameters (m and o in your example; I have no idea what you think
r-coeff is).
