[Numpy-discussion] Bug in numarray.typecode()?

I'm in the process of switching to numarray, but I still
need typecode().  I notice that, although it's discouraged,
the typecode ids have been extended to all new numarray
types described in table 4.1 (p. 19) of the manual, except UInt64.
That is, the following script:

import numarray as Na
print "Numarray version: ",Na.__version__
print Na.array([1],'Int8').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'UInt8').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Int16').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'UInt16').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Int32').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'UInt32').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Float32').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Float64').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Complex32').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Complex64').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'Bool').typecode()
print Na.array([1],'UInt64').typecode()

prints:

Numarray version:  1.0
1
b
s
w
l
u
f
d
F
D
1
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 14, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/numarray/numarraycore.py", line 1092, in typecode
    return _nt.typecode[self._type]
KeyError: UInt64

Should this print 'U'?
