[SciPy-dev] Deprecation warnings

Hi all,

The test suite currently generates a batch of deprecation warnings:

- PyArray_FromDims: use PyArray_SimpleNew
- PyArray_FromDimsAndDataAndDescr: use PyArray_NewFromDescr
- set_local_path/restore_path will be removed in NumPy 1.3

The path manipulation functions were deemed not to be needed any more
for NumPy; unless somebody can cite a reason they're needed in SciPy
I'll take them out here too.  I can try to clean up the other warnings
if nobody else has the time at the moment.

There's also a fair amount of test detail being spewed out inline with
the unit test output, which makes things rather cluttered.  Would
anyone be horribly offended if I cleaned that up as well?  It seems to
me the unit tests should generally be silent unless something goes
