I agree with the idea of the statement. However, practicality may beat
purity here because of the backward-compatibility issue. The only
proposal on the table is pulling in more functions from arrayfns. I'm
fine if they live in the oldnumeric name-space (but it will actually be
easier to put them in the lib namespace because the arrayfnsmodule.c
file became the _compiled_base.c file in numpy.lib.
Perhaps they can still live in _compiled_base.c but not be pulled in to
numpy.lib (only a oldnumeric.arrayfns module).
