Good point; I'll post something to the numpy/scipy mailing list and see if 
I can get some reactions.

This is the biggest minus right now for me, and it's the reason that I'm 
only proposing this for 3.1, not for 2.7.  (I guess 3.0 would have been 
better.)  My main motivation for this change came from seeing the extra 
gymnastics required to special-case complex numbers in Eric's new 
formatting code; the rest is just personal taste, I guess.
