Excellent,  your R14 contribution is greatly appreciated.

By the way, I believe the complex array problem was fixed (which version 
of SciPy did you start from?).

At any rate, I would be glad to apply your patches.  There is a 
bug-tracker at sourceforge where you can store a patch to make sure it 
gets recorded.   But, make sure you let scipy-dev know about the patch 
so we can apply it.

Finally,  scipy is undergoing some changes and so don't be discouraged 
if your patch doesn't get applied immediately.  It's on the queue....
