Numpy's new docstrings is are now in SVN too, for the most part. An
amazing amount of work was done during the summer, thanks to all who
participated!

These I didn't commit yet. Mostly, they can be fixed by adding necessary
entries to add_newdocs.py. However, some of these may be objects
assigning docstrings to which may be technically difficult and requires
larger changes. The second error may also indicate a bug in patch
generation.
