[Numpy-discussion] numpy.core.numerictypes questions

I hope this is the right place for this question... if not, I apologise, 
and ask only that you please direct me somewhere more appropriate.

Line 532 of numerictypes.py reads "_unicodesize = 
array('u','U1').itemsize", but _unicodesize itself does not appear to be 
referenced anywhere else. My questions are:

* Does this line have any use?
* If not, would it be possible to remove it from a future release?

I ask because I'm working on a project to get CPython extensions 
(specifically numpy) working with IronPython, and this line is blocking 
me. If I comment it out, I can actually import numpy and use some 
features, but I'm not sure how important unicode arrays are: if they're 
not widely used, I'd be keen to ignore them for a while and work on, 
say, floating-point arrays.
