[SciPy-Dev] life expectancy of scipy.stats nan statistics

I'm just looking at http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/ticket/1200

I agree with Ralf that the bias keyword should be changed to ddof as
in the numpy functions. For functions in scipy.stats, and statistics
in general, I prefer the usual axis=0 default.

However, I think these functions, like scipy.stats.nanstd, should be
replaced by corresponding numpy functions, which might happen
relatively soon. But how soon?

Is it worth deprecating bias in scipy 0.10, and then deprecate again
for removal in 0.11 or 0.12?
