reshape() has already been proposed (RFC 148):

However I like the Numeric Python reshape() semantics better:

Nate (RFC 148 maintainer) and I are trying to find away of getting the
greater flexibility of his proposal with the more intuitive semantics of the
Numeric Python version. Hopefully we'll have an RFC or 2 on this shortly.

PS: How does one pronounce 'hrmpf'?
