As I mentioned before, I think numpy should have some equations for dealing
with n-dimensional vectors (but would also work with complex dtypes).  This
would include n-dimensional equivalents of np.abs and np.angle, as well as
a function to go back to an n-dimensional vector from the length and
angle.  Considering how critical vector analysis is to signal processing, I
am surprised these don't already exist.  There aren't even functions that
work with 2-dimensional vectors, you have to construct a complex array
first (which isn't that easy to do).

Speaking of which, I think there should be a function to construct a
complex array out of two identically-shaped floating-point arrays, as well
as perhaps an np.i class that converts a real array to an imaginary one
(using __mul__ and such).
