Not a good idea, as pylab will be replaced by pyplot which only
contains plot commands. The remaining will be left to numpy, and pylab
does not have the same functions as numpy.

My answer would be like Stuart's: a mix of Python, numpy, scipy and
whatever scikit or additional numpy module I need, with ipython.
That's if I want to do scientific computation.
