[SciPy-User] a=b operation in numpy

Dear all,

Does anybody know what is the rational in defining for the 'a=b' operation
a pointer copy and not a complete copy?
It is inconsistent from an algebraic point of view, since 'a=b' is not the
same as 'a=b+0'.
And it is also confusing for starters.

Best regards,
