So inverse_real_fft should do the inverse of real_fft, right? That's not
what it does at the moment.
>* Note: These function are both available for efficiency only. There is no reason

Of course, and I am not planning to use them. I am just preparing the next
part of my Python tutorial, which will cover linear algebra, FFT, etc.
I guess I'll just say nothing about real FFTs!
Konrad.
