I had a look at all the new chararray docstrings and it all looks pretty
good, thanks! There is one minor thing that requires some mass-editing: the
type description "array_like of string_ or unicode_" needs to be "array_like
of str or unicode". Also similar usage of string_ and unicode_ elsewhere.
The trailing backslash is Sphinx markup for a link, so they all turn into
broken links.

The other problem I noticed is the intersphinx links to the Python docs
(str.methodname) do not work. The intersphinx extension seems to be enabled,
not sure why it does not work. Maybe Pauli can shed some light on that.
