[Numpy-discussion] Recarray comparison and byte order

I was surprised by this - is it a bug or a feature or me
misunderstanding something?

a = np.zeros((1,), dtype=[('f1', 'u2')])
b = a.copy()
b == a
(array([True], dtype=bool)) # as expected
c = a.byteswap().newbyteorder()
c == a
(False) # to me, unexpected, note bool rather than array

Thanks for any clarification...
