I'd just like to jump in here to clear up this last statement as an Enthought 
employee. While Enthought and its employees do contribute to the development of 
numpy and scipy in various ways (and paying us money is a great way to let us do 
more of it!), there is no direct relationship to the revenue we get from EPD 
subscriptions and our contributions to numpy and scipy.
