[Numpy-discussion] bug in oldnumeric.ma

All,
I fixed the power function in numpy.ma following Anne's suggestion: compute 
first, mask the problems afterwards. It's a quick and dirty fix that crashes 
if the user has set its error system to raise an exception on invalid 
(np.seterr(invalid='raise')), but it works otherwise and keeps subclasses 
(such as TimeSeries).
I will have to modify the .__pow__ method so that ma.power is called: right 
now, a**b calls ndarray(a).__pow__(b), which may yield NaNs and Infs.
What should I do with oldnumeric.ma.power ? Try to fix it the same way, or 
leave the bug ? I'm not that enthusiastic to have to debug the old package, 
but if it's part of the job...
