This solves the python lib problem, but not the API problem. In the API,
I've got some arrays, and when I want to store these arrays in CGNS I cannot
decide if an UInt32 is a string or not. Then I'll have to manage my string
arrays as specific types, but not arrays...
I'll have to add an attribute to arrays to indicate that it is a string,
if so then I should store it in CGNS as C1 array.

Is there a reason why Char type is not taken into account in numarray ?
Well known data representation or storage systems as netCDF or HDF, or
even ADF (our CGNS storage system) have a Char type...
