Could you provide more details about this to the ticket I created based on your email: http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/numpy/ticket/636

I was needing an array representation of ndindex since ndindex only gives an iterator but array(list(ndindex)) takes too long. There is prob some obvious way to do this I am missing but if not feel free to include this code which is much faster.

# Need a list because we will go through it in reverse popping # off the size of the last dimension. dims = list(dims) # N will keep track of the current length of the indices.
