[Numpy-discussion] Code Freeze for NumPy 1.7

Just added PR #359. The purpose is to allow the nditer object operand and
iter flags to be set for a ufunc to provide better control over how an
array is iterated over by a ufunc and how the ufunc uses the operands
passed to it. One specific motivation for this is to be able to specify an
input operand to a ufunc as being read/write instead of read only. For
example, to allow your ufunc to write back to the first operand:

PyObject *ufunc = PyUFunc_FromFuncAndData((PyUFuncGenericFunction*)func,
data, types, 1, 2, 1, PyUFunc_None, "ufunc_name", "ufunc_doc", 0);

/* override the default NPY_ITER_READONLY flag */
((PyUFuncObject*)ufunc)->op_flags[0] = NPY_ITER_READWRITE;

/* global iter flag that needs to be set for read/write flag to work */
((PyUFuncObject*)ufunc)->iter_flags = NPY_ITER_REDUCE_OK;

Thoughts?
