Sure, but that wasn't my question.
I was asking about the difference between indexing with a 1-tuple (or
scalar) and with a 1-list. Naively, I guess I didn't expect there to
be a difference. Though, I can see its uses (through the z[z<3]
The dictionary example is nice in that is really highlights exactly
*how* different arrays are from python dictionaries (aside from the
obvious): since lists are unhashable, you can't index with them at
all. Yet you can index numpy arrays with lists AND the behavior is
different from if you indexed with a tuple!
>>> z = array([1,2,3])
>>> i =
