I think it should have numpy or ndarray in the name somewhere to indicate  
that it is numpy specific. Hmm <looks in thesaurus>, maybe,  
  
__supercede_ndarray__,  
__disallow_ndarray__,  
__deny_ndarray__,  
__reject_ndarray__,  
__refuse_ndarray__,  
__exclude_ndarray__,  
__reject_ndarray__, ...  
  
My preference among those would be __deny_ndarray__.    
But isn't the issue present with numpy matrices or scipy.sparse matrices as well?  
So I guess instead of ndarray another word should be used.D.
