But why would you want to?  array dtypes are immutable, so you are
saying: I want this field to be only empty strings now and forever.
So you can't initialize them to be empty and then fill them later.  If
by construction it is always empty, why have it at all?

Then again, numpy allows me to create empty arrays.... x = np.array([])
