[Numpy-discussion] Indexing a 2-d array with a 1-d mask

Hi,
I have an NxM array, which I am indexing with a 1-d, length N boolean
array. For example, with a 3x5 array:
In [1]: import numpy
In [2]: data = numpy.arange(15)
In [3]: data.shape = 3, 5
Now, I want to select rows 0 and 2, so I can do:
In [4]: mask = numpy.array([True, False, True])
In [5]: data[mask]
Out[5]:
array([[ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4],
[10, 11, 12, 13, 14]])
But when the shape of 'data' is a 0xM, this indexing fails:
In [6]: data2 = numpy.zeros((0, 5), 'd')
In [7]: mask2 = numpy.zeros(0, 'bool')
In [8]: data2[mask2]
------------------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<ipython console>", line 1, in <module>
IndexError: invalid index
I would have expected the above to give me a 0x5 array.
Of course, I can check on "len(data)" and not use the above indexing
when it is zero, but I am hoping that I don't need to special case the
boundary condition and have numpy fancy indexing do the "right thing"
always. Is this a bug in numpy? Is there any other way to do what I
am doing?
Here is my numpy setup (numpy installed from the git repository):
In [1]: import numpy
In [2]: numpy.__version__
Out[2]: '1.6.0.dev-13c83fd'
In [3]: numpy.show_config()
