I think we tried this already (my c99-umath-funcs branch had 
TestC99 special case tests that were in Numpy trunk for a while). 

The outcome was that the current implementations of the complex 
functions don't have essentially any special-case behavior that's 
consistent across different platforms. And our buildbot coverage 
is not large enough, so users will report failing tests even if 
buildbots are OK... After repeating this cycle a couple of times, 
IIRC only some special cases of log survived :)

Of course, if you meant to merge the tests first to the new 
implementations and that to trunk, this sounds better.
