Yes.  The new behavior is to return a string array with the same 
itemsize as the input array.  That's primarily just the result of the 
new implementation rather than a thought out change, though.

Sorry, just commenting on the parts I feel competent in :)  But I think 
this is a great improvement.  It would be nice to start doing doctests 
as a matter of course to keep the docs accurate.
