I guess you could call it a distribution which puts a lot of tools
under a common interface because that's basically what it is.
Afaik, the programs that come with it are isolated to the package. Too
bad it wont make it to community then, since I was hoping to spare a
lot of compilation time for people :P

With regard to scilab, I haven't used it myself, but it certainly
looks interesting. I'll take a look at it later today.
