[SciPy-user] Polynomial interpolation

If the functionality of krogh_ev is useful, why not put it in a method?
A compatibility module is a very good idea. But a concern with that is
one of documentation. If I am a new user to both scipy and the
splrep/splev library, I will be confused with which calling convention
is best. As a developer more external explanation is needed and more
code needs to be commented.
More tests also need to be written to ensure full code coverage.
