I chose "Numerical computation" - with the intent of including
packages that fill the same space as Matlab and IDL. This is a clear,
distinct group, large enough to merit it. There may still be scope for
a "Data Analysis" task which could reference this one.

It does. Can I encourage people to file similar bug reports, as I have
had a good response when I've done so. 

A significant number of packages, including pdl, also lack a homepage
field. I have been holding off filing these bugs until lenny is
released (but maybe I should file them now).
