Hi All,

I'm thinking of changing the names of fmax and fmin to fmaximum and fminimum
so that fmax and fmin can play the roles corresponding to max and min.

Should I add the names atanh, asinh, and acosh as aliases for arctanh,
arcsinh, and arccosh? The vote looked pretty evenly split. If we add them, I
suggest we merely add a note to the documentation of the old functions
suggesting use of the new names to conform to general practice. A while ago
I added deg2rad and rad2deg as aliases for radians and degrees respectively,
so this can be seen as more of the same.

Pauli, can you change the name of code_generators/docstrings to something
more descriptive? I think ufunc_docstrings would be a bit clearer. I expect
this requires various fixups here and there, so I'm tossing the problem over
to you.

Chuck
