[Numpy-discussion] fpower ufunc

Hi All,

I've put up a preliminary PR <https://github.com/numpy/numpy/pull/8190> for
the proposed fpower ufunc. Apart from adding more tests and documentation,
I'd like to settle a few other things. The first is the name, two names
have been proposed and we should settle on one

   - fpower (short)
   - float_power (obvious)

The second thing is the minimum precision. In the preliminary version I
have used float32, but perhaps it makes more sense for the intended use to
make the minimum precision float64 instead.

Thoughts?

Chuck
