And I see from there:
     :See also:
       numpy.ndarray.reshape() is the equivalent method.

so it looks like they are the same thing. On the other hand, I *think* 
that some of the ndarray methods are slightly different, but the 
functions have been retained with the old functionality for backward 
compatibility reasons. However, it looks like ndarray.reshape() is 
behaving like the docstring for numpy.reshape(), so there is a bug of 
some sort (probably a doc bug).

if numpy.reshape() is delegating to ndarray.reshape() couldn't they 
share docstrings somehow?
