Not entirely.  The issue was namespace clashes between packages.    This 
issue has come up before and is localized to the numpy.dual module.  If 
somebody would like to re-write the module to contain a register 
function that scipy hooks into to register new functions for the ones 
listed there,  then that would be a better solution.  But, I haven't had 
time to do it.
