Well, for example, I have experience *masking* arrays in IDL, but not in Numpy, and not using an object-oriented model.  Nevertheless, I'd be happy to ask you q's...

I'll finish the uncategorized docstrings I feel comfortable with (e.g., *not* distutils), and then help w/ any remaining MA's.

Others, of course, do as thou willst, modulo Pierre's request.

Thanks again!
