Well, to me zip(*x) is unnatural, and it's inefficient when the arrays are long.
Would it be worth having a transpose() function in the stdlib somewhere, that returns a view instead of copying the data?
I've intentionally left out multivariate statistics from the initial version of statistics.py so there will be plenty of time to get feedback from users before deciding on an API before 3.5.
If there was a transpose function in the std lib, the obvious place would be the statistics module itself. There is precedent: R includes a transpose function, and presumably the creators of R expect it to be used frequently because they've given it a single-letter name.
