The `condlist` argument must be a list of bool arrays. In your case,
because `q` is python list, `q < 3` is not an array. It is simply `False`:
In [3]: q = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
In [4]: q < 3
Out[4]: False
It will work if you pass in lists of boolean values. E.g.:
In [6]: piecewise(q, [[x < 3 for x in q], [x >= 3 for x in q]], [-1, 1])
Out[6]: array([-1, -1, 1, 1, 1, 1])

In [4]: q = np.array(q)
