Sebastien has proposed that np.random.choice return
a single *element* by default, not a 1d array of length 1.
He proposes to associate this with a default value of `size=None`.

The motivation: it is more natural, and in particular,
it would behave more like Python's random.choice by default.

This decision should be made before this function
is part of a release.

Cheers,
Alan
