You're quite welcome.
Corollary: to unmask values, use
myarray[i] = nomask
of course, use with caution: there are cases where unmasking masked values can
lead to bad surprise (eg, if the masked values were not defined...)

You know, the 'new' implementation was designed to be as close as the one
available in numpy, so that shouldn't be a problem at all. Besides, it fixes
some issues, so I can't but advise you to try it when you'll see fit...
