Can I propose yet another way of naming?
How about renaming the already existing refarray into "aligned_refarray"
and naming the upcoming one as "refarray". Sometimes, I think, it's
necessary to break the API (which should be ok here as it's very recent)
to do things right rather than be constantly confused later on.
P.S. if not, then arbarray should do it. I don't think you want to make
the names similar (for the aligned and the "unknown alignment"
versions), since this can confuse future novices.
