Nicely done.  I'll be using Numpy/Dislin in a 3rd year and graduate
classes this fall, so these mini-tutorials are immediately useful to

Under potential future topics: wrapping legacy Fortran/C numerical
code may be too advanced for this series, but if not, I think a
side-by-side comparison of pyfort and CXX-Array on a fortran or c
function would be extremely useful.  In particular, I don't think
enough people realize what can be done with the new CXX-4.2 release.
