Everything Matt Cutts has said here is not a surprise. They are working on improving panda and releasing a new update...this is something that should ALWAYS be done when releasing an algo change. Nothing is perfect on an initial release. The bones of any great software are making improvements and working out the bugs.
I am glad to hear they are working on the issue where scrapers are outranking the original article source. I do not care how poor quality content google views a given site, they have every right to rank first for there content no matter how crappy it may be.
At this point calling this a penalty or a re ranking is just semantics. Who cares what anyone calls it as long as you recover from it, correct?
I am not going to praise google for improving something they release...that is there duty as a quality company. It is what separates a great company from a not so good one. Google received a lot of feedback about panda and it is there job to look at that feedback and adjust to get it right which I am confident they will do.
