stats is not part of newcore. 

There is an exponential in scipy.basic.random however.

The only issue is that some variables get converted to a higher 
namespace when scipy is imported.    They are always available in their 
package, however.


from scipy.basic.random import exponential works

from scipy import random
exponential = random.exponential

also works
