A common name for the scipy stack - pylab?


(Apologies if you get this twice - I forgot which address I subscribed
to the list with)

As some of you may have seen, there's a discussion underway on the
scipy-user mailing list about developing a common name for the scipy
stack. At present, the discussion is centring on adopting the name
pylab, as it's already familiar to people using
numpy+scipy+matplotlib. If we did use that name, we'd obviously need
to co-ordinate with matplotlib to ensure that there isn't confusion
between the name Pylab and the importable module pylab.

If you want to get involved in the discussion, please head over to the
scipy-user mailing list so we keep it in one place. You can read
through the current thread:
