I will, one question though: Why does MaskedArray reset the fill_value
when creating a view?  This, appearantly, is what happens when the
self._series property is accessed. Isn't it more reasonable to
preserve it? I haven't been able to pinpoint what exactly caused the
behaviour to change, whether it was the Numpy 1.3 -> 1.5 change or the
Python 2.6 -> 2.7   (I would guess the former, though.)

Ticket #105 created.   http://projects.scipy.org/scikits/ticket/105
