Comment(by rgommers):

 Josef reminded me what would happen in case there is a license issue -
 basically just the code has to be taken out again. Given the Java guys
 basically said yes, that's a small risk. So here's a reworked version of
 Enzo's algorithm: https://github.com/rgommers/scipy/tree/stats-work.

 That branch also contains a few other commits on stats.py - Josef, can you
 look at all of that at once? Please double check the definition in the
 Notes section of the docstring. I took it from the end of a long
 discussion on-list about kendalltau in March 2009.
