[Numpy-discussion] deleting value from array

I am trying to delete a value from an array
This seems to work as follows

>>> a = array([1,2,3,4])
>>> a = delete( a, 1 )
>>> a
array([1, 3, 4])

But wouldn't it make more sense to have a function like

a.delete(1) ?

I now get the feeling the delete command needs to copy the entire
array with exception of the deleted item. I guess this is a hard thing
to do efficiently?
