I don't have a strong opinion either.
The numpy.fft module docstring is short enough (when rendered on the
webpage) that most of it can be repeated. My initial thought was that
fft in scipy could be explained more in terms of fft2 and fftn, with
examples for those. (I just recently struggled with fftn and there is
not much example code available.)
I think, the definitions and formulas should be included for all
transforms in any case.
