[AstroPy] Documentation Guidelines

After the discussion on the list and some further experimentation, I
think my concerns about numpydoc for processing docstrings have been
addressed.  I'm pretty sure I was the only one who had any concerns
about that area, so I'm not sure there's even need for a vote, as it
appears to me that we have reached consensus that numpy/scipy
docstring style is the way to go.

Given this, does anyone specifically want to see a vote on this
matter?  If not, I will update the next version of the guidelines to
state that docstrings should follow the numpy/scipy style.
