#577: Return value of sum of masked array is inconsistent
--------------------+-------------------------------------------------------

     Type:  defect  |      Status:  new                 
 Priority:  normal  |   Milestone:                      
Component:  Other   |     Version:  1.0.1               
 Severity:  normal  |    Keywords:  ma masked sum scalar
--------------------+-------------------------------------------------------
 When calling the sum method of a masked array with no arguments, the
 result can be either a scalar or a 1 element array depending on whether
 the mask is nomask or not.  I'm attaching a patch for ma.py below that
 should fix this problem.
