 It looks like the scipy.stats module needs some updating. First, there are
 now some duplicate with numpy functionality. Also, the API do not match
 between numpy and scipy. Eg :

 {{{
 #!python
 from numpy.random import randn
 from scipy.stats import mean
 a = randn(10, 10)
 print a.mean()
 print mean(a)
 }}}

 What is the feeling of other people on changing the module so that numpy
 and scipy behaviour match for all moments related function (mean,
 variance, kurtosis, etc...) ?
