[SciPy-Dev] binned statistics

Hello all,
I recently opened a PR at https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/173.
This implements some binned statistics: similar to a histogram, except 
rather than counting the points within each bin, it computes some 
statistic (e.g. mean, median, etc.) of values within the bin.

This is a tool I've found useful in representing multi-dimensional data, 
and I think it may be a useful feature to include in scipy, though 
matplotlib might be a better fit.  Any comments would be appreciated!
