Hi All -

  I am doing a few small experiement with XUbuntu 12.04.3 and the 
current repos.. 
As some already know, I am advocating using python "distribute" / pip  
to add python assets

  I have installed ipython (1.1) and numpy using pip and the results 
look good. You may
know that iPython Notebook has gained a significant user base in the 
science community since the
last Live release. 

  I went to install matplotlib, and had to add a few things.. 
libpng12-dev and libfreetype6-dev
which we already use...Otherwise all went well.. 

  I notice that install_IRIS.sh has quite a few of the same 
dependancies as the SciPy stack,
yet uses apt to install the python assets.  unless someone else jumps 
in, over the break I will
likely try re-arranging those install lines and see how that works out.. 

  In general I think there is a lot of stability in using python pip 
to get the required packages.
