I wonder if this issue is appearing in other places as well. Many of the
ndarray methods work without modification on my Quantity subclass, but the
methods that produce scalars do not. For instance, __getitem__ yields a
dimensionless number when called with an integer index, but  it yields
another Quantity if called with a range, so I have to reimplement
__getitem__ so it yields a quantity for single indices. tolist, min, max,
mean, are the same way. Is there an ndarray attribute I should be using to
tell the superclass what is the desired type (aside from
