The Numpy docstring standard dictated that the __init__ method should be 
documented in the main class docstring.

I don't personally like this very much. Maybe we need to revise this?

Anyway, the Sphinx dev version contains an improved version of 
autosummary that has features that could be used to address this.


So I'd suggest currently just making a separate hand-written page for the 
interpolation class docs, making appropriate use of the autoclass:: and 
automethod:: directives.

The main documentation page interpolate.rst could then contain the 
corresponding autosummary directives without the :toctree: argument.
