The problem (that the OP had) appears to be with
scipy.interpolate.fitpack. Can it be marked as deprecated (i.e., users
get a rude^H^H^H^H warning telling them to use
scipy.interpolate.fitpack2 instead)?

As a user, I often find it difficult to locate the "correct", i.e.,
up-to-date, supported, interface to do various tasks (for example,
interpolation and ODE solving). Would people find it helpful if I went
through and included cross-references in the docstrings?
