[Numpy-discussion] reshape docstrings conflicting

Hi all,

The ndarray.reshape docstring claims:

	"Also always returns a view or raises a ValueError if that is 	
	impossible."

whereas fromnumeric.reshape claims:

	"This will be a new view object if possible; otherwise, it will
	be a copy."

while the code paths for both functions are the same.

So, which one of these is correct? Or, does ndarray.reshape always
return a view? This is not immediately obvious looking at the code...

I'll fix up the docstrings once I know.
