When I went through the Numarray docs and made suggestions for
improvements (see the list I posted at Sourceforge), I didn't make any
comments about functional changes, only what the documentation said. 
Since the sum() method is documented using 1-D arrays, you can't tell
that it in fact behaves differently than the sum() Ufunc.  On
reflection, I also agree that the Ufuncs and methods should behave the
same way.

Why do you say 'numarray is confusing'?  What in the docs would help
un-confuse it, in your view?
