Could you describe more detailed manner about why you want to get rid of
that loop? Performance wise? If so, do you have profiled what's
the bottleneck?

Please provide also a more detailed description of your problem, since now
your current spec seems to yield:
r= array([  1,   1,   1,  48,  68,   1,  75,   1,   1, 115,   1,  95,   1,
1,   1,   1,   1,   1,   1,  28,   1,  68,   1,   1,  28])

My 2 cents,
-eat
