Comment:

 Thanks, nice idea for a test.

 I don't think we can include a test like this in the test suite, but it
 would be interesting to add it to the test directory, so it can be run
 sometimes manually, especially when adding new methods.
 One caveat of this script: doesn't work on Windows the use of `commands`
 needs to be replaced by `subprocess`.

 We can add a simple test

 {{{
 hypergeom.sf(5,10,2,5)
 }}}
 to the test suite, but it might not test this bug, because nose doesn't
 run test in reliable sequence (as far as I know).

 The "if cond" can be applied, and for scipy 0.9 the log??? methods should
 also be checked, logpdf, logcdf, logsf and corrected.

 I suggest to leave the ticket open until we have tested all methods for
 all distributions (only once) for problems with no *goodargs.
