Oh, just in case you haven't found them, you might also be
interested in the SciPy and Scientific Python projects:

   http://www.scipy.org/

   http://sourcesup.cru.fr/projects/scientific-py/

Though they have deceptively similar names, they're two
separate projects.  Unfortunately, some rather promenent
documentation conflates the two.  For example,

  http://docs.python.org/3.1/tutorial/whatnow.html

refers to www.scipy.org as "the Scientific Python" project.
