p.s. Just to be clear: personally, I think we should have neither `__numpy_getitem__` nor a mixin; we should just get the quite wonderful new indexing methods!
Hehe, yes but see MaskedArrays. They need logic to also index the mask, so `__getitem__`, etc. actually do a lot of things. Without any complex changes (implementing a unified method within that class or similar). The new indexing attributes simply cannot work right. And I think at least a warning might be in order (from the numpy side) for such a subclass.
But maybe MaskedArrays are pretty much the most complex subclass available in that regard....
