In the original MA in Numeric, I decided that to constantly check for masks
that didn't actually mask anything was not a good idea. It punishes normal
use with a very expensive check that is rarely going to be true.
If you are in a setting where you do not want this behavior, but instead
want masks removed whenever possible, you may wish to wrap or replace things
like masked_array so that they call make_mask with flag = 1:
y = masked_array(data, make_mask(maskdata, flag=1))
y will have no mask if maskdata is all false.
Thanks to Pierre for pointing out about masked_print_option.
