I don't think so.  This means that NumPy suddenly behaves differently
when dask is imported, which again causes the problem mentioned earlier:
that identical NumPy code could behave differently depending on library
versions, imports, and the environment.

That said, I think this is a better solution than an environment

Anyway, my opinion is just one of many: I'd like to hear what the other
developers think.

Best regards,
