[Numpy-discussion] umath ufunc docstrings

I'd like to adjust the way numpy.core.umath ufunc docstrings are defined
to make them more easy to handle in the ongoing documentation marathon:

- Remove the signature magic in ufunc_get_doc
- Define ufunc docstrings in a separate module
  instead of in generate_umath.py, in the same format as in 

Suggested patch is attached; it passes numpy tests. Any thoughts on
whether it should go in?

I was also thinking about the problem with pydoc.help and ufuncs: would
making PyUFuncObject a subclass of PyFunctionObject be a reasonable fix?
