very cool, thanks!

Most of those examples have been integrated in the docstrings, and many more
have been written in the doc wiki. They also use "from numpy import *"
instead of the np namespace. So instead of spending time fixing links, it
might make more sense to generate a new version of this page (with more
useful links) from the docstrings themselves.
