If you don't like the name, you can propose a different name  via ticket 
(probably less likely but numpy 2.0 is around the corner). In the 
immediate term, please find time to update the documentation so both 
squeeze and expand_dim are added to the respective pages so that it 
easier to find - an joint example of squeeze/expand_dim would help here.
