No, to remove the warning pydocweb (the wiki app) should recognize the
Methods section in class instance docstrings I think.

A related point: the docstrings for the stats distributions are generated
from a template right now, so any edits for those docstrings in the doc wiki
can not be merged without a lot of tweaking. If you're also interested in
working on other areas of the scipy docs, that might be more effective.
