[Numpy-discussion] combination of list of indices and newaxis not allowed?

I think you just can't use newaxis in advanced indexing (doc says "The
newaxis<http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/arrays.indexing.html#numpy.newaxis>object
can be used in the basic slicing syntax", and does not mention
newaxis in the advanced indexing part).
