It seems that ArrayType is missing from types module in Jython2.5a3.
Shouldn't it be included for compatibility with 2.2?

I nuked this because CPython doesn't have it. This makes our life easier 
-- one less patch to maintain against CPython I figured most people 
would be using array.ArrayType anyway.

If this was a 2.3 release I'd consider going through all the hoops to 
have it emit a DeprecationWarning when used, but since we're hopping 
directly to 2.5 I figured I could get away with removing it (there's a 
couple other things that will immediately go away with 
DeprecationWarnings due to the large version hop)

Reopen this if you're adamantly opposed to this move

Didn't know about array.ArrayType. We can easily change our code to use
it already now. Might actually be a good idea to mention that
array.ArrayType works both on 2.2 and 2.5 at
