    	Hi.  I'm trying to use NumPy's chararray class for an array of 
characters.  I notice that when I try to set a chararray element to a 
space, it actually gets set to an empty string.  I found some pages 
online indicating that the chararray strips trailing whitespace from its 

    	I am really, really, hoping this is not a hard-coded, unalterable 
behavior.  Is there a way to get NumPy chararray to include the 
characters I tell it to, without modificiation?
