Perhaps what people are missing, is that the name of the new array
object is *ndarray*. Try type(array([10,20])) to see what I mean.
Because it is a *new-style* builtin type, it can be constructed by
calling the type object:
Normally people use scipy.array to construct an array but subclasses
need to be able to access the class constructor.
So, I'm concerned about confusing the class constructor with a
*sub-package*. Does, that make sense?
