[SciPy-dev] alternate .flags interface

I'm wondering if the current flags interface couldn't be made a bit 
easier to use to allow mapping of dictionary keys in to attributes. For 
example:

instead of arr.flags["CONTIGUOUS"]

arr.flags.contiguous

If using a dictionary is considered useful (e.g., for getting the whole 
state, it is still possible to allow arr.flags to return a dictionary 
derived object that can be used wherever dictionaries are accepted, and 
likewise, assigning to arr.flags should be able to take a dictionary of 
flags. Any reason we can't support this interface?
