It does. Are there many users of unique1d( a, return_index=True ) out there?

The new way is consistent with matlab, and IMHO more logical - the 
additional return values are appended to the returned tuple rather than 
prepended. It was my mistake to introduce the previous order (do not 
recall the motivation anymore :]).
