Agreed. Scipy.special functions were just changed to generate warnings on
truncation of float inputs where ints are expected (only if truncation
changes the value, so 3.0 is silent and 3.1 is not).
For numpy indexing this may not be appropriate though; checking every index
value used could slow things down and/or be quite disruptive.
