I'd like to hear more about why the empty tuple has been selected as the default index.
It's still not settled. Steven proposed None, I propose empty tuple for affinity with *args behavior, others proposed no positional arg at all, but then there's the problem of the setter. I sent a mail to the numpy mailing list yesterday, and all people who replied seemed to prefer empty tuple. Here is the thread http://numpy-discussion.10968.n7.nabble.com/Request-for-comments-on-PEP-637-... -- Kind regards, Stefano Borini
