It may be worth bearing in mind that indexing a python list is faster
than a ndarray (mostly because ndarrays must support many more
features), so if you don't require (or exploit) the features of ndarrays
(i.e. you don't need fancy indexing or element-wise operations), you may
be better off with lists.
