[Numpy-discussion] C-API change for 1.2

Hi all,

The 1.2 version of NumPy is going to be tagged.  There is at least one 
change I'd like to add:   The hasobject member of the PyArray_Descr 
structure should be renamed to "flags" and converted to a 32-bit 
integer.   

What does everybody think about this change?  It should have minimal 
affect except to require a re-compile of extension modules using NumPy.  
The only people requiring code changes would be those making intimate 
use of the PyArray_Descr structure instead of using the macros. 

It's a simple change if there is no major opposition.

-Travis
