Comment(by pv):

 Can we arrive in a decision on this? To me either option seems OK.

 I would just drop the erlang distribution, and make erlang an alias of
 gamma. We don't provide any useful integer-based features in any case (I
 don't think the check is useful).

 Re: different special functions: scipy.special has some duplicated
 functions --- some come from a probability density function oriented
 library, and others from a more mathematically oriented one. They should
 be equivalent.
