[Numpy-discussion] reduce function of vectorize doesn't respect dtype?

The reduce function of ufunc of a vectorized function doesn't seem to
respect the dtype.

>>> def a(x,y): return x+y
>>> b = vectorize(a)
>>> c = array([1,2])
>>> b(c, c)  # use once to populate b.ufunc
>>> d = b.ufunc.reduce(c)
>>> c.dtype, type(d)
dtype('int32'), <type 'int'>

>>> c = array([[1,2,3],[4,5,6]])
>>> b.ufunc.reduce(c)
array([5, 7, 9], dtype=object)

My goal is to use the output of vectorize() as if it is actually a ufunc.
So I'd really like to just type:   b.reduce, b.accumulate, etc.
And I don't want to have to write (after using it once to populate b.ufunc):
