The ticket is more concerned with the usability of ndimage.
Currently, the principle of least surprise is violated.  If you use
the default arguments of ndimage.rotate (except for axes, which should
still be fixed to be (1,0) by default) and rotate Lena by 30 degrees,
you get something with green splotches on (attached to the ticket).

IMO, we should either change the default parameters or update the
documentation before closing the ticket.
