Well, this would be fine if I was assigning the values to tempories as
you suggest. However, the operation should be performed inplace and
this is what I don't understand - why is there no for loop? I think
the semantics of these inplace indexed operations is intuitively quite
clear and numpy doesn't follow this intuition. Would there be any
interest in changing this behaviour in numpy?

Sorry if i'm rehashing old ground, but the closest thing I could find
to a numpy faq is here: http://www.scipy.org/FAQ. There seems to be no
mention of this issue there.
