I'm not 100% sure about the new behaviour -- compress now removes
masked elements, instead of ignoring them.  Whereas a person would
have been able to do

compress(x,condition).compressed()

before, the mask information is now thrown away.

The numpy docstring states that compress should be equivalent to
a[condition], which is no longer the case.
