Mmh, this looks crufty to me: special cases like these look bad in a
library, and break the 'just works' ideal we all strive for, IMHO.
Why not have arrayobject.h be fully include-safe with prefixing of all
of its #defines, leaving a private header for use by numpy's
I really don't like having to remember (or teach) special cases. One
never seems like too many, until you forget it months later and waste
an afternoon hunting for a strange bug.
Just my opinion...
