 I ran into a problem with multiplying a float by a poly1d and getting an
 array instead of a poly1d returned.  It only actually happens if
 multiplying by a numpy.float64 and not just a regular float or int

 temp = poly1d([1.0,2.0])
 temp*10#<-- This is fine, returns poly1d
 10*temp#<-- returns poly1d
 10.0*temp#<-- returns poly1d
 numpy.float64(10.0)*temp#<-- returns array of coeffs
