Lest everybody think that I'm only about ripping things out, let me
propose adding a feature. Well, sort of. I propose that we make:
an value error for right now instead of returning a rank-0 object array.
Then, in Python 2.5, we can use the _length_hint protocol to efficiently
create arrays from iterator objects without any extra copying. The exact
details don't need to be worked out right now, after all we're all too
tied up with reshape, but I'd like to reserve that syntax for that purpose.
