Thanks for sharing, this looks like an interesting project!

I would also be curious how MyGrad compares to Autograd [1], which is
currently probably the most popular package implementing "drop-in autodiff
for NumPy." From a quick look, it appears that you take a slightly
different approach for the design -- object oriented rather than functional.
