Comment(by josefpktd):

 I would close it as won't fix, and the making it an alias is fine with me.

 But given that I'm currently just a reviewer in scipy.stats, I leave the
 final decision to Ralph, and you.

 As reference:
 Nicki replied on the mailinglist that some users might expect an integer
 answer in fit. But since we don't have any support for this, and since it
 would break the generic pattern, I don't see much reason of enforcing
 integer parameters anywhere.
 Otherwise, Nicki also thinks that users don't need to be protected from
 using floats.
