Roux example would be bad in either language. Slices ('vectorization' in
Matlab lingo) is preferred in both cases. It's just that neither Matlab
nor Python/NumPy was designed to be used like Java. For loops should not
be abused in Python nor in Matlab (but Matlab is more forgiving now than
it used to be).
