I think this change is worth making, because:

- It provides a consistent API for gridding.
- It optimises the most frequenty used situation:

x, y, z = ogrid[...]

- Someone already took the trouble of writing the patch.

If the (minor) API breakage is considered a problem, could we go
through the standard deprecation process and have this included?
