[Distutils] Improved Stats Features in Python

Dear Ralf,

Thank you for your suggestions. About the Bartlett test I'm aware that 
one of his tests (equal variance of samples) is already available. 
Nonetheless, I'm not talking about that particular test but about other 
Bartlett's test. The test I wish to contribute is directed to Factor 
Analysis and is related to the test for sphericity. I'll try to submit 
both to the statsmodel.

Best Regards,
