#422: __getitem__ method of MaskedArray returns ndarray in some cases
 Reporter:  reggie      |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal      |   Milestone:          
Component:  numpy.core  |     Version:          
 Severity:  normal      |    Keywords:          
 When using extended slicing on a MaskedArray with its mask set to nomask,
 the {{{__getitem__}}} method (called because of the *extended* slicing)
 will return only the data portion of the MaskedArray thereby causing the
 result of your slicing operation to be an ndarray instead of a

 I'm attaching a patch that seems to fix this problem and also eliminates
 the {{{__getslice__}}} and {{{__setslice__}}} methods as I believe they're
 only needed in Python versions prior to 2.0 which aren't supported by
 numpy, if I'm not mistaken.
