Can you give an example of duplicates here? I see functions like cov and
itemfreq only listed once.

The pages are under scipy.stats.stats but the ones that are imported to
scipy.stats should be listed only there. That's how the NumPy Milestones
work anyway.

This looks like a bug in pydocweb to me, since

>>> sp.stats.nbinom is sp.stats.distributions.nbinom

but there are actually separate pages:

They can be edited in the wiki, but you're right that there will be a
problem when trying to merge wiki edits back into trunk. There's a similar
problem in ndimage, where the wiki collides with docstring manipulation in
the code. No solution for that yet, but it should be fixed somehow.
