Many of the fortran based functions are underdocumented, e.g.
lapack/blas in linalg, most functions in special, often the fortran
files contain quite extensive documentation. But it seems in some
cases like dfitpack, some documentation are autogenerated.
Just a question because I don't have the time to look into this:
Do we need to mark f2py wrapped functions as "unimportant", or can we
make sure every f2py wrapped function has a editable docstring?
