Should be mentioned on the mailing list before merging, just in case someone really cares about these few functions.

SciPy member

I must admit, I didn't track how these functions got "lost". So, they were available once, but then removed between 0.x and 0.10 somewhere, without updating the docstring? If someone cares about the functions, can they still access them?

SciPy member

Yes, in their respective modules. That has been the recommended way to import/access them for a very long time.

SciPy member

No response on the list for 4 days, so time to merge this.
