RFC: new task-science package

I recently took over task-science. Below is the current draft -- I'd welcome
comments and suggestions about what to include or exclude. I removed some
packages which were IMHO too esoteric, or which were libraries only (though
I might one day place them back into a new `task-science-dev') and added a
few others. While I used Avery's popularity-contest pages as a guide of what
is actually being used, I recognise that such a selection will always be
subjective. Any feedback?

Thanks, Dirk

 Description: Packages for numerical computing, data analysis and visualization
  The task-science meta-package contains dependencies on packages which are
  suitable for scientific work. Under a fairly loose definition of
  'scientific', this includes numerical analysis and computing, statistical
  data analysis as well as visualization.
