In a separate message, since perhaps a little less looney: yet another option would be work by analogy with np.ix_ and define pre-dispatch index preparation routines np.ox_ and np.vx_ (say), which would be used as in:
array[np.ox_[:, 10]] -- or -- array[np.vx_[:, 10]]
This could work if those functions each return something appropriate for the legacy indexer, or, if that is not possible, a specific subclass of tuple as a marker that gets interpreted further up.
Sure, it would be a solution, but not sure it is any better implementation wise then just passing an extra argument. As for the syntax for plain arrays, I am not convinced to be honest.
In the end, though, probably also too complicated. It may remain best to simply implement the new methods instead and keep it at that!
