Can you explain this more? Both you and Anne seem to share the opinion that
the resize method is useless, while the resize function is useful. So, now
I'm worried I'm missing something since as far as I can tell the function is
useless and the method is only mostly useless.

In general I think methods are easy to overdo, but I'm not on board for this
particular case.

but it is possible to overdo it. Is this a Numarray compatibility issue?

Dunno about that.
