I really, really want to get rid of the asterisks, they are ugly and distracting (IMHO).
I agree, which is why my deflist example did not use asterisks. I consider it readable and only very slightly verbose. (The blank lines are needed by reST, but the whole example is still only 14 lines long.)
I also like `if` much better than `<>`, which I also find visually distracting.
PS A more compact example:
q, r if mode = 'full': - q : ndarray of float or complex, shape (M, K) - r : ndarray of float or complex, shape (K, N) r if mode = 'r': - r : ndarray of float or complex, shape (K, N) a2 if mode = 'economic': - a2 : ndarray of float or complex, shape (M, N)
K = min(M, N). The diagonal and the upper triangle of `a2` contains `r`, while the rest of `a2` is undefined.
