[SciPy-dev] Broken Python Type Alias

Greetings,

The alias to the python type "sb.float" that previously was working in 
my regression testing system now raises an attribute error.  However, 
"sb.float_" still functions correctly. Example:



In [16]: x = sb.ones((10,),dtype=sb.float)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
exceptions.AttributeError                            Traceback (most 
recent call last)

/data/sparty1/dev/devCode/<console>

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'float'



My regression tests first showed this behavior yesterday morning with 
the checkout of newcore revision 1396.
