Ok, I've attached, as a first cut, a diff against SVN HEAD that does (I
think) what I'm looking for. It passes all of the old tests and passes
my own quick test. A more rigorous test suite will follow, but I want
this out the door before I need to leave for the day.
What this changeset essentially does is just add support for automatic
dtypes along with supplying/reading names for flexible dtypes. It
leverages StringConverter heavily, using a few tweaks so that old
behavior is kept. This is by no means a final version.
Probably the biggest change from what I mentioned earlier is that
instead of dtype='auto', I've used dtype=None to signal the detection
code, since dtype=='auto' causes problems.
I welcome any and all suggestions here, both on the code and on the
original idea of adding these capabilities to loadtxt().
