scipy, like numpy, is numerics, and it would make some sense to
separate those from math. It would also make a clear place to put

"numerics" would be a good one to add.)
I also kind of feel like "sciences" would be a better name than
"science", but that gets into TEAL WITH CREAM ACCEConnection closed by
