 reported by Matthew Brett

 invnorm is a confusing name for the distribution, in the literature it is
 mostly called the Inverse Gaussian, or for some parameterization Wald,
 np.random uses Wald

 see thread at http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/scipy-
 user/2010-April/025003.html

 proposal:
 depreciate name invnorm and replace it with invgauss


 How can we depreciate a class and a class instance?

 Docstring can have a warning text, but I don't see where we can raise a
 warning.
