Sorry for that, it's true that the summary was one-sided. I wanted to be 
brief, and ended supressing some information.

I was not aware of the original motivation for having those functions 
there, and I see those points are valid too. Nevertheless my motivations 
for bringing this up on the mailing list go no further than raising 
discussion and help closing and old issue, so apart from getting them 
out from the main namespace (either numpy.financial or complete removal, 
and yes, for aesthetic reasons) I am +-0 on either proposal.
