One more comment about the constructor described on the page above.
It would be good if we could have the same syntax as the current
numpy.ndarray, and then simply call through to the underlying C
constructor.  We'd also need zeros, empty, ones_like and some other
select functions.  The goal is to remain as faithful as possible to
the original API, so that there is hardly a distinction between Python
and Cython.

Cheers
Stéfan
