My quick check shows that amin(y), min(y), and amin(x) all work after
"from scipy import *". Only min(x) doesn't, and it is a Python built-in
which throws an "iteration over non-sequence" exception when called with
a scalar. Should Numeric 3 bump amin and similar functions up into
itself? How many others need a min-like function which works with both
arrays and scalars? In numarray, min is a method. Is this better?
