I guess I should have said "others *will* differ with me on this point" :-)

I like the idea of an ndarray being a concise description of bytes in
memory.  At the moment, we have a couple of "special" methods attached
to it, but we could just as well have added fewer or more, and
personally I'd have preferred none.
