Statistical Computing Platform for Python

I came over this talk proposal for the 2012 Python Conference:


pandas is a Python library providing fast, expressive data structures for working with structured or relational data sets. In addition to being used for general purpose data manipulation and data analysis, it has also been designed to enable Python to become a competitive statistical computing platform.
In contrast to other tools in domain-specific data analysis languages like R, it features deeply integrated array axis indexing which enables intuitive data alignment, pivoting and reshaping, joining and merging, and other kinds of standard relational data manipulations. 
 While I've not looked at nor used the library at this point, if anyone would like to explore or try it out for their work, please let me know - I'd be happy to dive into it with you.
