Please keep in mind that some of the tests have been reimplemented in  
scipy.stats.mstats to support masked/missing values in scipy.mstats  
and to take ties into accounts ...
I trust y'all to let me know of any inconsistencies between the masked/ 
unmasked versions, whether in terms of signatures or assumptions.
Thx a lot in advance...
