Darn. I thought I gave you enough time.... :-)
On the other hand, all I did was change the way the error-mode is being
looked-up (from the three dictionaries to just one). It's not much
different than before except for that. I didn't do anything about the
other ideas you spoke of.
I did add a simple object to reset the error mode when it gets deleted,
and had to fiddle with the seterr code a little to accept that object so
that both methods of resetting the error mode work.
A stack can certainly be built on top of what is now there (I'm thinking
for numarray compatibility...), but I didn't do that.
Sorry for stepping on your toes. I'm just anxious... I'll be gone for
a couple of days and won't be working on NumPy/SciPy, so feel free to
