Couldn't it determine the dtype from the first element, and then barf later
if an incompatible one shows up?

And then we could adapt this code to np.array() and get nice performance
with no extra functions to think about calling...

And off the top of my head, I can't think of why it couldn't be generalized
to the nd case as well.
