Sorry - that one's mine. I intended to use it for deciding the matlab
output type for any given numpy input type, but I never plumbed it
into the reader, so currently it is unused in the scipy tree at least.
It is probably best to deprecate it for 0.8.x and remove it in 0.9.
I may need the functionality later but we've always got version
control in that case.
