[Numpy-discussion] should I replace asarray with asanyarray in my code ?

Hi,
This is a vaguely formulated question ...
When I work with memmap'ed files/arrays I have a derived class 
that adds special attributes to the array class (referring to the MRC image 
file format used in medical / microscopy imaging)

What are the pros and cons for asarray() vs. asanyarray()

One obvious con for asanyarray is that its longer and asarray is what I have 
been using for the last few years  ;-)

Thanks,
Sebastian
