Hmm, you're right. OK, here's a simpler proposal for 3.3:

1. Always look at shape first. If they're different, then they're not equal

2. If both formats are known, compare by unpacked value

3. If either format is unknown, compare by memory contents (just like 3.2)

The fallback case should then behave exactly like 3.2 (since 3.2 really couldn't handle anything other than 1D data and always ignored the format info).

I'd be happier if the compare-by-value didn't make complete copies of the entire array though.
