Switching to use libndarray is a big ABI+API change, right?  If there's an
idea to release an ABI-compatible 1.6, wouldn't this end up being more
difficult?  Maybe I'm misunderstanding this idea.

I looked a little bit at the 1.4.0 ABI issue, and if the only blocking
problem was the cast[] array in ArrFuncs, I think that can be worked around
without too much difficulty.  Would people want an ABI-compatible 1.6
release adding date-time and float16?
