We should be able to do that. Having an implicit "from scipy import
linalg" for every doctest in scipy/linalg would be the least
complicated thing, but if some other scheme makes more sense in terms
of keeping the examples simple/reasonable, I don't mind.  We can go
down to the point of customizing it for each test if need be.
