I'm not opposed to getting rid of putmask either.   Several of the newer 
methods are open for discussion before 1.0.   I'd have to check to be 
sure, but .take and .put are not entirely replaced by fancy-indexing.   
Also, fancy indexing has enough overhead that a method doing exactly 
what you want is faster.
