just mirrored, original is on scipy.org

I didn't know adding stars works:
12,600 results for *stats*
120  results for *stats* bug

I would guess that the most popular functions are also the ones that
are the best documented (or they are popular because they have the
least obvious API).

(for example I didn't find much on ttest,  too obvious ? except for a
possible enhancement/addition
