I think I see a bug in lib.user_array.container class. The __eq__
def __eq__(self,other): return self._rc(equal(self.array,other))
the expression equal(self.array,other) will return an ndarray of
bools, which is then converted, by way of self._rc(), to whatever the
derived class is. In my case, this does not make sense, because an
array of bools is not a valid argument to the constructor (actually,
the data buffer is accepted, but the results are not reliable). What
I want, and it seem most people would want in this situation, is just
the array of bools; i.e. don't apply the self._rc() method.
Assuming there is agreement that this is the desirable behavior, the
same would be true for __lt__, __le__, etc.
I will probably override this behavior by defining my own __eq__,
etc., in my derived class, just for safety.
