Hi!  The Contents section of the scipy (package) docstring states: "SciPy
imports all the functions from the NumPy namespace"; then, further down in
the Wiki rendering of that scipy docstring, there's an auto-generated list
of Functions (absolute, add, ..., true_divide, trunc).  Are these the NumPy
namespace functions referred to in the Contents section?  If so, why are
they links to scipy object docstrings?  (In scipy, are they just wrappers
for the corresponding numpy functions?)  If not, many (all?) duplicate
functions available in NumPy - is this intended?  Thanks!

DG

PS: Also, please remind/confirm: "Global symbols from subpackages" are names
of objects defined in some subpackage, but imported by scipy such that they
are available in the scipy namespace, correct?  Thanks again.
