Did anyone try the testcase, and understand why vectorize BREAKS the
function ?
It works as written with funciter()
but vectorize => broadcasting => ValueError.

Vectorize f ?
    return np.vectorize( f ) (t)  # instead of return funciter( f, t )
=> ValueError: setting an array element with a sequence

? p0 p1 m0 m1 are all the same shape, scalars / vecs / arrays to
at one or several `t` s.
Anyway frompyfunc broke with ValueError too
but I don't understand pydoc numpy.frompyfunc --
and if (googling) vectorize is a wrapper for frompyfunc, how can that
help ?
