scipy.special imho. mpmath is nice, but it doesn't understand ndarrays and
is way too slow when you want to use the polylog for something like fitting
Bose-Einstein or Fermi-Dirac distributions.

It looks like the implementation in mpmath is quite clean and could provide
a starting point for a Cython/C version.
