I'm afraid you're right. Had it not been for MATLAB's tremendous mindshare (existing code) in academia/engineering co.'s, I doubt they would sit as pretty right now.

Next time I have to rearchitecture code/start anew, I'm sticking with scipy. Octave is great, but... yeah, as you say, not a real option (it's not drop in replacement, and if I have to rewrite code, I might as well pick a proper language).

What good is a ticket to the good life, if you can't find the entrance?
