[Numpy-discussion] Fwd: [numpy] ENH: Initial implementation of a 'neighbor' calculation (#303)

For the neighbor module, the neighborhood is input specified by the
'weight' array.  All values in the neighborhood are processed by a function.

In the geosciences, ArcGIS is a very important tool and the neighbor module
is very loosely modeled after

If the language is confusing, now is the time to change the names.

Kindest regards,
Tim
