ascii I/O is slow, so that's a reason in itself to want it not to be slower!

I agree -- for the simple cases, fromfile() could work very well --
perhaps it could even be used to speed up some special cases of loadtxt.
But is anyone working on fromfile()?
By the way, I think overloading fromfile() for text files is a bit
misleading for users -- I propose we have a fromtextfile() or something
