[SciPy-user] solve_banded documentation

the docstring of solve_banded seems to be not correct/up-to-date, or at
least unclear. It is not clear which dimensions the band matrix should
be: the example is an l+u+1 matrix, while the input parameter
description shows its transpose. This induces difficulties in figuring
out which elements of the diagonals are used and which are not.
I am currently figuring out on a small example how to use this method by
comparing to the solve method. This should not be necessary. (I can
contribute docstrings later, if wanted.)
The input parameter naming in the docstring is inconsitent with the
declaration line of the method; only adding to the confusion.
Is someone checking if the docstrings are correct when putting something
in, and if they remain correct when methods are changed?
