As I indicated above, this is unacceptable for the apparent usage.

I do not understand what is expected with the ndim argument. If it is
the indices of an array elements of the form: [0][0][0],  [1][1][1],
... [k][k][k] where k=min(a.shape) for some array a then an ndim args
is total redundant (although using shape is not correct for 1-d
arrays). This is different than the diagonals of two 2-d arrays from
an shape of 2 by 3 by 4 or some other expectation.
