You're right, after Mike's fixes that note should have been changed. I
thought Mike had also proposed an alternative text, but I can't find it
right now. So feel free to change it.

Also keep in mind the following (from another of Mike's emails):
"All vectorized string operations are now available as regular functions in
the numpy.char namespace.  Usage of the chararray view class is only
recommended for numarray backward compatibility."
