The ufunc signatures in the docstrings are automatically generated in 

I changed the code in r5768 so that it's more obvious the various 
functions take output arguments. When the interface gets adjusted so that 
'out' are actually keyword arguments, the signature formatting needs to 
be changed again so that 'outN' look like keyword arguments.

Currently the 'sig' and 'extobj' arguments are not shown in the 
signature. I'm not sure whether it makes sense to add them, since they 
appear to be for quite exotic use only...

todo.pop(); todo.append(B)
