I thought PyNIO was "the NCAR way" to interact with netCDF from "the NumPy world." Plainly I am mistaken! So my next question is, how do netcdf4-python and PyNIO compare/contrast? Why use one rather than the other?

(And the question after that is, does answering the first question require stepping into some kinda political minefield ?-)
