Speaking of which...

I thought that there was a readily-written, optimized function (or ufunc)
in numpy or scipy that calculated the sum of squares for an array
(possibly along an axis). However, I cannot find it.

Is there something similar? If not, it is not the end of the world, the
operation is trivial to write.

Cheers,

Gaël
