I added a new issue that is a regression about numpy.ndindex() that we
already talked. But it was a duplicate, so I closed it. I think it
got lost as the ticket wasn't marked for 1.7 milestone. Ccan someone
do it? I don't have the right.
This regression break something in Theano. We could work around it,
this also break stuff in SciPy from a comment in that ticket.
