Except that it would kind of make more sense, at least to me, for
unpackbits to return a boolean array, and packbits to take boolean
arrays. I could try to look into fixing the code instead of the docs,
if others agree.
Otherwise I'll fix the docs. Maybe that's better from an API-breakage
standpoint anyway, regardless of what "makes sense to me"...
