Or another way of looking at it:

All scipy bugs worked around by giving it exactly the version of
everything that it assumes.

scipy is not very robust when it comes to dealing with variations in
python library versions.

My impression is that the scientific software in general does not spend
time on making things portable, as long as it works in the one environment
they work in.  Anything more would be time wasted that could have been
spent on something else.
