[Numpy-discussion] match or vectorized in-type function.

I have two vectors of integers of not necessarily the same length.
Consider the hypothetical function match (or if you are familiar to R
then consider that function).
match(v1, v2) => returns a boolean array of length len(v1) indicating
whether element i in v1 is in v2.
I cannot find this function in numpy. I would assume a variant is there,
but not being able to find it I wrote it myself. First, is there such a
function? Second, if there is not, is this implementation reasonable?
thanks, jim
from numpy import *
a2 = random.randint(1, 1000, 1000)
a1 = random.randint(1, 10000000, 100000)
def match(v1, v2):
d = dict(zip(v2, range(0, len(v2))))
return array([ d.has_key(x) for x in v1])
