Bah. I should have just pasted the code. The copy ctor does copy the
contents of the array.

I thought I meant b = a, and even though I was aware this just makes b a
reference to a, didn't appreciate it.
I now mean a deep copy b = copy.deepcopy(a). So this means either
providing some method by which the object can be pickled, or exposing a
__deepcopy__ function. Or something.
Thanks, that helped a lot.
