I was not familiar with the "poly1d vs. Polynomial" choice.

Now, I found in the doc some more or less explicit guidelines in:
http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/routines.polynomials.html
"The polynomial package is newer and more complete than poly1d and the
convenience classes are better behaved in the numpy environment."

However, poly1d, which is nicely documented doesn't mention the
"competitor".
Going further in this transition, do you feel it would make sense adding
a "See Also" section in poly1d function ?

Best,
Pierre
