I would also advocate for fixing these functions if possible (removing
ndim=1). ascontiguousarray(...) is certainly more readable than asarray(...

The conservative way to handle this would be to do a deprecation cycle,
specifically by issuing FutureWarning when scalars or 0d arrays are
encountered as inputs.
