Comment(by josefpktd):
This is what the test is supposed to do, I don't think we have this test
in scipy.stats
sample variance on top (check ddof of variance, not that it matters at
large sample sized)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chi-squared_test#Chi-
squared_test_for_variance_in_a_normal_population
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variance#Distribution_of_the_sample_variance
I think the distribution should be correct also for large samples if the
distribution is not normal, (central limit theorem?).
