Thanks to Per Brodtkorb for suggestions, I think these are ready for review now.

I also did fft2 and ifft2, which became less clear than I had hoped,
as these accept (and handle) instructions for n-dimensional transforms
without complaint.  If I document fft2 as a 2-D transform it becomes
more clear, but less accurate.  Opinions, anyone?

I've gone on to rfft, irfft, fftn and irfftn, and I am struggling a
bit with these, especially with the description of the length/shape
argument.  I know perfectly well what they should tell the reader, but
I am not 100% convinced the current prose actually tells it clearly.
