Unfortunately it is in bytes and Travis convinced me that there is no

I've changed that.  In the future, please just edit the wiki for

corrections are more than welcome.

Record arrays is a new feature in numpy.  I think what I wrote is
correct, but this entry will definitely benefit from a review by
someone familiar with record arrays since I am not.
