Seems like a strange discussion to have on the scipy list :)

I don't want to have a hole in my unit test coverage. But I could copy
over the nan functions in scipy stats. And I guess the benchmark could
use those too. And then skip moving window benchmarks against
scipy.ndimage for those who don't have scipy installed.
