Many of them are already gone and raise an exception (mean, var, std,..)

some others are under depreciation warning during 0.8. cycle and I
guess will be removed in 0.9 (samplestd, samplevar and I think
corrcoef and stderr).
I need to check, but I think all of them delegate to the numpy
functions, but use the old scipy default options for backwards
compatibility during depreciation.

We should make sure that all function that we want to get rid of, have
a depreciation warning when 0.8 is released so that we can remove them
in 0.9 or so
