To finalize the implementation of the Slicer Python interface and solve packaging problems linked to Scipy.

Approach, Plan

The Slicer Python interface now works well for both non-interactive and interactive modules. A few improvements are still needed, namely

- calling VTK static methods - e.g. slicer.vtkMath.Norm(v)

- handling modified arguments - e.g. slicer.vtkMath::Normalize(v)

- defining methods with the exact number of arguments (now it's not constrained, so if it's wrong Tcl complains) - this will require a patch on the VTK Tcl wrappers

- fix a memory leak associated with Python scripted modules

- review the Slicer Python to Numpy code and eventually extend it to handle more general image or data types

- implement callback functions in Slicer Python, for widgets and programmable filters

As for packaging problems, testing will have to be performed on several architectures.

Finally, documentation will be improved.
