One thing I've missed is why 'apt-get source python-scipy' dowloads  
files that are not in the .deb package (same version number 0.6.0-5.1  
for instance). In fact all the files in scipy/integrate/mach/ for  
example were not in my installation so that applying the patch failed.

How explain this difference ? I though sources and deb were similar  
packaging of the same stuff, one being as a tarball, the other one as  
a binary...
