[AstroPy] Robust Statistics in Numpy?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a package in Python / Numpy / SciPy that provides robust
statistical functions, such as the Resistant Mean or the Robust standard
deviation - essentially, a Python analogue of the IDL Robust Statistics
package described here:
http://idlastro.gsfc.nasa.gov/contents.html#C17
http://idlastro.gsfc.nasa.gov/ftp/pro/robust/aaareadme.txt

After some googling, I found an ad hoc implementation of two of these
(robust mean and robust standard deviation) at this website:
http://code.google.com/p/fmccd/source/browse/trunk/fermiMCCD.py?spec=svn18&r=18
but I'm interested in an actual, maintained package, if one exists (and I
feel that there should be one).

Thanks very much,
Tom Rice
