DataArray is hard to type:

>>> from datarray import DataArray
>>> dar = DataArray([1,2,3])

Can we shorten it? Would darray work?

>>> from datarray import darray
>>> dar = darray([1,2,3])

You know, numpy does seem to have a pattern of using names that are almost like real names. Masked Arrays are kinda like "mary", and a labeled array is a "larry". Maybe we could get a "darren" or "daryl"?


How about from datarray import DataArray as darray?
