1. I use numpy in teaching.
I have never heard a complaint about its indexing behavior.
Have you heard such complaints?

2. One reason I use numpy in teaching is its indexing behavior.
What specific language provides a better indexing model,

3. I admit, my students are NOT using non-boolen fancy indexing on
multidimensional arrays. (As far as I know.)  Are yours?
