If the question is whether we will be adding that feature to numarray, 
the answer is no. We don't have close to the resources to do that and 
work on porting our stuff to scipy_core at this time (anyone else that 
wants to is welcome). [As an aside, we considered adding that to 
numarray at the start, but decided against doing that because indexing 
seemed complex already; not that we are against the capability.]
