IntegrationOperator: Integrates over subspaces of fields
FFT convention adjusted
=======================
-----------------------
When going to harmonic space, NIFTy's FFT operator now uses a minus sign in the
exponent (and, consequently, a plus sign on the adjoint transform). This
convention is consistent with almost all other numerical FFT libraries.
Interface change in EndomorphicOperator.draw_sample()

Hermitian and positive endomorphisms as covariance. Just by looking at an

New approach for random number generation

Interface Change for from_random and OuterProduct
=================================================
-------------------------------------------------
The sugar.from_random, Field.from_random, MultiField.from_random now take domain
as the first argument and default to 'normal' for the second argument.
Likewise OuterProduct takes domain as the first argument and a field as the second.
Interface Change for non-linear Operators

The method
`Operator.apply()`
