Josef, the changes are here:
http://github.com/rgommers/scipy/tree/statsdocsFor examples of new
docstrings, see maxwell, wald and nbinom.

Do you use git, or would you prefer it if I opened a ticket and attached a

The things I was not sure about:
1. do you want the old-style classes with better help()? I actually consider
