Thanks, I will do it in several steps.
All tests pass (after making sure that no old stuff is lying around),
but not every function is tested.
Also np.lookfor picks it up

given our previous discussion, and the wikipedia definition of
percentileofscore, I don't see any reason not to do a very simple
Initially, I thought the proposed implementation can be vectorized,
but I don't see how. Without vectorization, this version looks much
simpler and, I guess, should be about as fast:

import numpy as np

def percentileofscore(a, score, kind = 'mean' ):
    n = len(a)
    if kind == 'strict':
        return sum(a<score) / float(n) * 100
    elif kind == 'weak':
        return sum(a<=score) / float(n) * 100
    elif kind == 'mean':
        return (sum(a<score) + sum(a<=score)) * 50 / float(n)
        raise NotImplementedError

If you think this is ok, I put it in svn, I'm not sure whether to call
the type, "kind", doctest pass the same as previous version
