I looked through all the division operators in ndimage, and it seems
Peter consistently used "//" for integer division.  Since the C code
is not influenced, you should be safe.

The only case I wasn't sure about is this line from morphology.py:

    pos = [ni * (structure.shape[ii] / 2) for ii in range(len(shape))]

Since you now get two errors, I suspect the problem might be with the
way the unit tests are constructed (I haven't checked how they used
