#1952: Float not allowed in std ddof
 Reporter:  pv          |       Owner:  somebody   
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new        
 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:  Unscheduled
Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:  1.6.0

 This should also take a floating-point value:
 >>> np.array([1, 1, 2]).std(ddof=1.4)
 TypeError: integer argument expected, got float

 In earlier versions of Numpy, this raised a DeprecationWarning --- which
 is also not correct behavior.
