[SciPy-dev] scipy.linalg and LAPACK 3.0

Some of the routines wrapped in generic_lapack.pyf seem to be deprecated in
LAPACK 3.0, notably _GESVD, which is rather slower than the new _GESDD. Is there
a reason for this (e.g. compatibility for people who haven't upgraded their
LAPACK, yet), or has simply no-one done the work, yet?

If the latter, I'll see what I can come up with and contribute.
