Subject: truth value of dtypes

Hi, why is >>> bool(np.dtype(np.float)) False ? I came across this when using this python idiom: def f(dtype=None): ....if not dtype: ........print 'using default dtype' If there is no good reason to have a False truth value, I would vote for making it True since that is what one would expect (no?) N.
