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.
