I have a suggestion here. How about we do not use any apt system packages at all anymore. We just use conda for all the testing. The only downside (the reason I hadn't done it yet) is that we will have to bump up our minimum dependencies because anaconda does not ship with all of the versions of numpy, scipy, etc that shipped with Ubuntu 12.04. So we will just bump up the minimum deps for (maybe only) scipy.
