 IMHO it would be useful to add a 'numrows' or 'nrows' parameter to the
 loadtxt() function, so that one can read only a specified number of rows.
 Typical use of this, together with the possibility to pass an open file
 object to the function, would be to read one after another several array
 data blocks separated by other information from a single text file.

 See the thread [1] for background explanation.
