Yep indeed. We can also add the subok=True flag.

Ah, prematurity depends on the context, doesn't it ? Isn't there some famous
quote about two-liners ? Here, we have a function that does little more but
calling array(x,subok=True, copy=False, ndmin=1) in a loop. Is skipping the
loop for some very specific applications really premature ? For example, I
tend to use more and more the subok=True flag instead of 'asanyarray': is
there any 'official' recommendation about this ?
