OK.  I'll check the imports and see about making the stsci module level 
stuff more scipy friendly.

There are doctests for image and convolve.  I will look into exposing them.

We normally package these as stand alone modules with our software 
distributions.  We haven't yet wanted our users to need to install 
scipy.  Obviously we need to make this more scipy friendly as well.
