 Hi!

 The docstring for scipy.stats.normaltest has minor defects:
 a) It says that normaltest returns only p-value, but actual function
 returns two values:

 In [15]: scipy.version.version

 Out[15]: '0.8.0'

 In [16]: scipy.stats.normaltest(scipy.arange(20))

 Out[16]: (3.9921161901757021, 0.13586981489872588)

 b) The first reference should not include Peason:
 http://biomet.oxfordjournals.org/content/58/2/341.abstract

 Thanks!
