[Numpy-discussion] deleting value from array

Yeah, I can see the copying is essential.
I just think the syntax
a = delete(a,1)
confusing, as I would expect the deleted value back, rather than the
updated array.
As in the 'pop' function for lists.
No 'pop' in numpy? (I presume this may have been debated extensively
in the past).
I find the syntax
a.delete(1) more logical.
