Comment(by mwiebe):

 With 'same_kind', there would be a slight difference, a consequence of how
 the types work.

 Python 2 has int / int -> int, so array(int) /= array(int) is ok.

 Python 3 has int / int -> float, so array(int) /= array(int) is trying to
 assign a float into an int array, and would raise an error.
