[SciPy-user] Multiple versions of functions ?

Just starting to explore new scipy core.
I'm seeing different versions of the same function. I've seen this
before, but I never bothered about it given that I had Numeric, and then
scipy duplicating some of the functionality of Numeric. But now I'm
wondering what's up.
scipy.exp and scipy.special.exp appear to be different. At least their
representations and doc strings are. No big deal, but why two versions?
scipy.ifft returns a ndarray but
scipy.fftpack.ifft returns an old fashioned Numeric array (if I'm not
Is there some reason? or will all this kind of stuff eventually go away?
is one version preferable? (since I want ndarray objects, I don't see
any use for scipy.fftpack.ifft)
I suppose the "non-preferred" versions might be deprecated, or used
behind the scenes somewhere.
if so, is there some way of figuring out which is the preferred version
(other than trying it out. In other words, does the hierarchical
structrure tell me somehow which is the prefered function?)
