Hi,

    I would like to add a special function (implemented in python), but 
not sure where I should put it for a patch: it looks like scipy.special 
is implemented in C/Fortran except for orthgonal function.
    The function I would like to add is the generalized gamma:

The function is useful to multi variate analysis (appears for example 
when one needs to compute the KL divergence of Wishart distributions, 
which appear quite often in Bayesian statistics).

    cheers,

    David
