We had a brief discussion on the mailing list a while ago about the
background docs for fftpack, repeating a few paragraphs doesn't sound
a lot of duplication.

Some (very incomplete) information is in
http://docs.scipy.org/scipy/docs/scipy-docs/tutorial/fftpack.rst/#fftpack
put there to rescue the Latex rendered formulas, because they had too
much markup for the docstrings.
