Sorry, hit Send accidentally.

The ActiveState recipe referenced is #579000; it's the same as the class I posted on GitHub, but with only the NumPy implementation, rather than both that and Guido's version. It also links to the two earlier recipes I could find, and to NumPy docs and code, and the discussion section covers (I hope) all the caveats and bikeshedding issues that came up in this thread; the goal is that anyone following a link from the docs will find everything they might need to know about.
