In [3]: import scipy

In [4]: scipy.alter_numeric?
Type:           builtin_function_or_method
Base Class:     <type 'builtin_function_or_method'>
String Form:    <built-in function alter_numeric>
Namespace:      Interactive
     alter_numeric() update the behavior of Numeric objects.

       1. Change coercion rules so that multiplying by a scalar does not upcast.
       2. Add index and mask slicing capability to Numeric arrays.
       3. Add .M attribute to Numeric arrays for returning a Matrix  4. (TODO) 
Speed enhancements.

     This call changes the behavior for ALL Numeric arrays currently defined
       and to be defined in the future.  The old behavior can be restored for ALL
       arrays using numeric_restore().
