FWIW, I've got issues and patches for a couple of chararray problems:
 __mul__ problem:  http://scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/855
 __mod__ problem: http://scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/856

I was wondering myself when I looked at the class whether anybody was
actually using it.  ;)  If it's to be replaced, we should probably
remove it from the compiled extension wishlist on
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/wiki/ProjectIdeas.
