yup, that does it, I hadn't found that, as I was expecting a more OO
way, i.e. as a method of the dtype.
Also, I need to know in advance if it's a int or a float, but I suppose
you can't really do much without knowing that anyway.
Actually, I'm a bit confused about dtypes from an OO design perspective
anyway. I note that the dtypes seem to have all (most?) of the methods
of ndarrays (or placeholders, anyway), which I don't quite get.
oh well, I've found what I need, thanks.
