In my field (economics), it has been a great way to 
introduce students to NumPy.  I suggest that this
reason alone makes it far from "useless".

I also personally find it convenient for linear algebra.
(I think you have stressed that this is just due to a
dearth of operators, but that is the current situation.)

Cheers,

PS In contrast to those supporting more ambitious and 
complex proposals, I think Travis's patch fixes almost 
everything that needs to be fixed.
