Comment:

 The documentation in your proposed new version for "start" is actually
 consistent only with the current behavior. I found rollaxis confusing at
 first too, but when I read the docstring now it makes sense.

 Either way, since you're proposing to modify existing behavior, the
 correct place to discuss this on the mailing list. Since it will break a
 lot of existing code I don't think there's a lot of chance this gets
 accepted though.

 Your extra examples and more accurate error message should be included I
 think even if the proposed change is rejected.
