I agree -- the ordering concept is the same, it's _what_ is being
ordered that's different. So I say we stick with 'C' and 'F' -- numpy
users will need to figure out what it means eventually in any case....
we need some better doc strings and *maybe* renaming a keyword arguemnt or two.
partly I say maybe because the "order" keyword in ravel() actually
mixes the two concepts anyway...
