Here's a patch.

Are use cases for buffer() satisfied by the new memoryview() builtin? 
If so, it would be nice to have an automatic conversion or to have the
Py3k warning suggest a possible substitute.

Your recent patches all use 4-space indentation, but Python 2.x 
recommended style is still to use tabs unless you start a new file. See 
PEP 7.

My apologies. I often forget to switch between tabs and spaces for
Python and C sometimes.
