Comment(by josefpktd):

 Yes, increasing the indent looks right to me
 we only need mu, if we don't have mu2 already given

 .var calls .stats with only "v" in the moments, which doesn't work in this

 minimal example/test case:

 >>> stats.nct.stats(10,1, moments='v')
 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\distributions.py", line
 1489, in stats
     if np.isinf(mu):
 TypeError: function not supported for these types, and can't coerce safely
 to supported types

 >>> stats.nct.stats(10,1, moments='mv')
 (array(1.0837223079391438), array(1.3255459592750558))
