Comment (by oliphant):

 This is a pretty good idea.   The right way to handle this, I think, is to
 attach a special-case fastclip function to the array data-type object (in
 the f-structure).

 Then if a data-type object has the fastclip function implemented (and min
 and max are simple scalars) it will use it otherwise, use the more general
 implementation.

 I'm trying very hard to avoid "magic function lists" which were in
 Numeric.  All special-case functions should be attached to the data-type
 object through the 'f' member.
