The netcdf 1-character string support actually prompted better
backward-compatible support for them in NumPy. There is a version of
pynetcdf (0.6) at pylab.sourceforge.net that works with character
strings and NumPy. The one in scipy.sandbox is going to replace
pynetcdf (but probably be replaced by another netcdf package).
