[SciPy-Dev] stats.nanstd interface

Hi all,

I've just updated the docstring for scipy.stats.nanstd to the new
docstring standard's format. I wonder if, for consistency of
interface, we should consider changing it to use a `ddof` parameter,
as numpy's std function does, instead of its current `bias` boolean
parameter. I'm aware that there are deprecation/API implications
associated with this, but I'm not sure what the specifics of those
are.

Angus.
