 Checklist from StatisticsReview:

  1.  The function works correctly
  2.  The docstring has been expanded (see attached patch)
  3.  Tests are in the attached patch
  4.  The algorithm just punts to numpy.mean
  5.  Code looks good
  6.  Function is public (scipy.stats.stats.nanmean)


  1.  Algorithm is fine since it uses whatever numpy uses
  2.  No obvious extensions present themselves
  3.  Used in Lib/stats/distributions.py (rv_continuous.est_loc_scale)
  4.  A simple example appears in the docstring
