I don't know why my posts take so long sometimes...

The solution is that now to get at functions that are in both numpy and 
scipy and you want the scipy ones first and default to the numpy ones if 
scipy is not installed,  there is a numpy.dual  module that must be 
loaded separately that contains all the overlapping functions.
