If there's still a slot, I'd like to introduce the group to the work
being done on DataArray. The one-liner:

arrays with rich geometric semantics


We have been developing ndarrays with support for named axes and
"ticks." If you're familiar with Larry or Pandas, or ever had trouble
keeping track of the geometry of your ndarray, then you will
appreciate the focus of this project.
