That's a good example, and indeed should be fixed. This is clearly a case
where no one will be relying on the new behavior; no one wants that object
array that's returned in 1.6.x.
Any other regressions from 1.5.x need to be addressed as well. We'll

Great. Please document the new setup, if it's better than the old one it
will probably make sense to adopt it for SciPy too.
