Ha! I knew numpy had some trick up its sleeve! I missed that part from
the numpy book (still digesting it all (the recycled paper doesn't go
down so well ;))), but it says it right there:

    "If the number of objects in the selection tuple is less than N, then ':' is
    assumed for any remaining dimensions."

I think that is exactly what I am looking for-- thanks for making me
aware of it!
