well, maybe it's time to start cleaning up mstats. For the z  
functions, that should be straightforward, provided we don't lose the  
mask with np.asarray (a np.asanyarray would be sufficient). In that  
case, we could probably drop support for them in mstats. At least, we  
should make sure that the mstats versions have the same defaults as  
the stats ones.
