#279: 'a' key should be added to typeDict

 I think that typeDict should receive a new 'a' entry for string types. For
 example, the next works:

 In [12]: numpy.__version__
 Out[12]: '1.0b5.dev3084'

 In [13]: numpy.dtype('i2')
 Out[13]: dtype('<i2')

 In [14]: numpy.typeDict['i']
 Out[14]: <type 'numpy.int32'>

 but this don't

 In [15]: numpy.dtype('a2')
 Out[15]: dtype('|S2')

 In [16]: numpy.typeDict['a']
 <type 'exceptions.KeyError'>              Traceback (most recent call

 /home/faltet/carabos/repositori/projectes/GESTA_2006/<ipython console> in

 <type 'exceptions.KeyError'>: 'a'
