In [10]: numpy.random.seed?
Type:           builtin_function_or_method
Base Class:     <type 'builtin_function_or_method'>
String Form:    <built-in method seed of mtrand.RandomState object at 0x3f0f0>
Namespace:      Interactive
Docstring:
    Seed the generator.

    seed(seed=None)

    seed can be an integer, an array (or other sequence) of integers of any
    length, or None. If seed is None, then RandomState will try to read data
    from /dev/urandom (or the Windows analogue) if available or seed from
    the clock otherwise.

It should not be exposed in scipy.stats.
