I've written a small PR on your PR:


Essentially, other than typos and copy editing, I'm suggesting that a
duck-array could choose to implement __array__ if it so chooses -- it
should, of course, return an actual numpy array.

I think this could be useful, as much code does require an actual numpy
array, and only that class itself knows how best to convert to one.
