So how can "Emacs Speaks __STATISTICS__" then support it ?  ;-)

Personally speaking, I have absolutely no bone in this fight.  I won't be
playing with Julia til I can apt-get it. Life's too short otherwise...  

But I wish them well as Matlab could do with a replacement, and Python STILL
hasn't managed to grow a coherent set of infrastructure there clearly is room
and a need.  So I guess we just wait for Doug et al to fill in the blanks :)
