That sounds like a good idea if np.oldnumeric is to disappear very soon. If
not, maybe we could have np.core.ma points to np.oldnumeric.ma (or just do
a "from np.oldnumeric.ma import *")

A wiki page on www.scipy.org where we would (1) describe the API changes (it's
now hidden in the DeveloperZone); (2) suggest some simple solutions to common
The (1) is easy to do, the (2) would be updated when needed.
