These subpackage docs were at one time auto-generated.  I'm not sure 
what the status of that is right now.  It could be that the info.py file 
is wrong in the sub-packages.

Should be possible.  The linalg approach uses f2py blas wrappers.  I'm 
sure there is already a wrapper around the underlying function that 
handles eigh.

Lots of little things to do so dive on in :-)

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.
