Yes.  The decision was made last year to support the sequence keyword
for the numarray.array() rather than buffer.  buffer has been deprecated
for almost a year so I think it's time to clean up the code.  I
personally like buffer better as well,  but I can't stand the code
clutter any longer... it should be one or the other not both.
