Good question. Having a dtype != None does skip a secondary loop.
Once again, I;m sure there's plenty of room for optimization (eg,
different loops whether the dtype is defined or not, whether missing
values have to be taken into account or not, etc...). I just want to
make sure that we're not missing any functionality and/or corner cases
and that the usage is intuitive enough before spending some time
