These questions appear from time to time - it would be nice to add more
kwarg options to all the functions in the arraysetops module, like 
return_index, rows (or better, axis!), etc. Unfortunately, I (the 
culprit of arraysetops) am too swamped by work to look at it right now.
But it's on my TODO list.

Best regards,
