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!
I don't maintain ndarray subclasses (I prefer composition), but I don't think it's too difficult to require implementing vindex and oindex properties from scratch.
Side note: I would prefer the more verbose "legacy_index" to "lindex". We really want to discourage this one, and two new abbreviations are bad enough.
Very much agreed.
