Hi Matt

The docstring for ``np.swapaxes`` is broken -- notice the indent after
the first line.  If you remove that, things should be fine:

In [31]: d =  np.swapaxes.__doc__

In [32]: d = d.split('\n')

In [33]: d[0] = '    Return a view of an array a with axis1 and axis2

In [34]: print SphinxDocString('\n'.join(d))

Return a view of an array a with axis1 and axis2 interchanged.


    **a** : array_like

        Input array.
