Well one thing, due to (what IMO is) a bug in pickle,

you need to modify, this seems to work:

    def __getattr__(self, name):        # delegate all operations not 
specifically overridden to base array
        if 'arr' in self.__dict__:      # this is to allow unpickle avoid 
infinite recursion
            return getattr (self.arr, name)
        raise AttributeError(name)
