Comment(by pv):

 I don't see any reasons to treat `None` specially. Numpy has facilities
 for treating missing values -- masked arrays and NaNs -- and there is no
 reason to discuss a new approach.

 I also don't think there is a reason to mention it in the documentation.
 Rather than explaining how to deal with `None` in data (as in
 commit:ac2c160c5b -- I'd suggest reverting it) it would be more useful to
 point to the direction of masked arrays and NaNs.
