np.correlate works in the time domain. I started a discussion about a
month ago about the way it's implemented
Unfortunately I didn't find time to dig deeper in the matter which needs
working in the C code of numpy which I'm not familiar with.

Concerning the normalization of mpl.xcorr, I think that what is computed
is just fine. It's just the way this normalization is described in the
docstring which I think is weird.
