My understand of OOP is that I expect a method to modify an object in
place, and a function to return a new object (or a view).
Now this is not true with Python, as some objects are imutable and this
is not possible, but at least there seems to be some logic that a method
returns a new object only if the object is imutable.
With numpy I often fail to see the logic, but I'd love to see one.
