 It looks like the scipy.stats module needs some updating. First, there are
 now some duplicate with numpy functionality. Also, the API do not match
 between numpy and scipy. Eg :

 from numpy.random import randn
 from scipy.stats import mean
 a = randn(10, 10)
 print a.mean()
 print mean(a)

 What is the feeling of other people on changing the module so that numpy
 and scipy behaviour match for all moments related function (mean,
 variance, kurtosis, etc...) ?
