I was unable to find any Numpy equivalent of this, so should I create a pull request in Numpy for the same!

Thanks for the suggestion.  I think Eric Wieser is right in his
comment on the related pull request:


The function is a one-liner in Python - albeit a slightly fancy
one-liner.  Also - I have never had need of this function in Matlab or
Numpy, and had no idea it existed.   So, I'd vote against, unless it
turned out it was much more common in use than my experience would
