These ideas are things that I wanted to tackle, but they might instead get better play as part of the GSoC program.

1. In the scipy.ndimage package there are many functions that have a 'mode' option to define the padding process to use to minimize edge issues. I think would be better to use the pad function in numpy. With this approach, as improvements are made in the numpy pad function, the scipy.ndimage package benefits.

2. Something that could be useful to me is to update ODRPACK to ODRPACK95. ODRPACK95 can be found at http://www.netlib.org/toms/869.zip. At the same time suggest to implement the new odr in scipy.optimize. License is not defined in the ODRPACK95 software but I found this in the netlib FAQ:

Most netlib software packages have no restrictions on their use but we recommend you check with the authors to be sure. Checking with the authors is a nice courtesy anyway since many authors like to know how their codes are being used.

Kindest regards,

Tim
