I am -1 on this. Ones should fill with ones, zeros should fill with 
zeros. Anything else is counter-intuitive. Calling numpy.ones to fill 
with fives makes no sense to me. But I would be +1 on having a function 
called numpy.values or numpy.fill that would create and fill an ndarray 
with arbitrary values.
