Nice, that turns off broadcasting t * p0 etc. which is exactly what's
needed here --
until the evil day when some caller passes in column vecs for p0 etc.
and broadcasting kicks in, wrong.

Is there a general way of turning off broadcasting in particular
functions ?
In interpolation one often has func( t, x ) where t may be a scalar or
range, x anything,
and wants exactly funciter() -- ugly, slow, correct.

Bytheway .../site-packages/numpy/doc/broadcasting.py in the dist has
pretty good examples
