The actual benefit to Pytave is that it translates Octave data types
into Numpy datatypes. If you just did Popen, you'd have to parse the
text output that you get from Octave, but Pytave already does this and
does it without pipes or parsing.

I like Pytave. I think I'll try to improve its packaging and get it
packaged for Debian and RHEL.
