[Numpy-discussion] step paramter for linspace

One motivation of this thread was that
adding a step parameter to linspace might make
things easier for beginners.

I claim this thread has put the lie to that,
starting with the initial post.  So what is the
persuasive case for the change?

Imo, the current situation is good:
use arange if you want to specify the stepsize,
or use linspace if you want to specify the
number of points.  Nice and clean.
