#1718: distributions do not accept complex arguments
 Reporter:  jseabold        |       Owner:  somebody   
     Type:  enhancement     |      Status:  new        
 Priority:  normal          |   Milestone:  Unscheduled
Component:  scipy.stats     |     Version:  devel      
 Keywords:  stats, complex  |  
 All of the distributions have something like

 output = empty(shape(cond),'d')

 in the pdf, cdf, etc. with the dtype hard-coded. This prevents us from
 using something like the complex-step derivative for getting standard
 errors for the maximum likelihood fit.
