I'll take a deeper look at the whole thing, and write up a new patch.
You can probably hold off reviewing the old one, Zach.  I will
probably move the index/result agreement to python, as long as I'm
making significant changes.

I don't think the label & index arguments need to handle arbitrary
types (so no complex, object, or string arrays).  However, the code
could be written to do so.  Opinions?
