Is the issue here that this is a slightly different meaning than the
"dtype" argument everywhere else? Frankly, that doesn't bother me -- it
is a superset of the functionality, is it not?
Though I guess I don't really understand quite what the difference is
between a subtype and a data-type. Or a type object vs. a datatype object.
