CPython issue here:

My numpy changes so far:
https://github.com/wickedgrey/numpy/compare/23965b6b665985390d7a...maintenance%2F1.6.x

>From my last commit message:
"Note that my changes to _internal were mostly of the "make it work"
variety; I'm not really understanding the wider scope.  Very much
needs review by wiser eyes."

I'd also appreciate some feedback on the unit test coverage; the
test_roundtrip_half function uncovered a problem that the other two
didn't (which surprised me), and I'd like to make sure that there
aren't more gaps in the tests that I've written.

Thanks for all the help!
Eli
