#1916: genfromtxt strips brackets from names
 Reporter:  mboquien  |       Owner:  somebody   
     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new

 genfromtxt systematically strips any bracket ([]) from the name of the
 columns. Here is a short snippet exhibitting the problem.

 In [1]: from StringIO import StringIO

 In [2]: s = StringIO('1 2\n3 4')

 In [3]: d = genfromtxt(s,names=['a[1]','a[2]'])

 In [4]: d

 array([(1.0, 2.0), (3.0, 4.0)],
       dtype=[('a1', '<f8'), ('a2', '<f8')])

 Note that 'a[1]' and 'a[2]' have unexpectedly been substituted with 'a1'
 and 'a2'.

 Thank you very much, regards,
