As far as I know, PEP 3118 serves its purpose of allowing extension modules like numpy and PIL to share data without needing to copy it around all the time. It's just that memoryview wasn't really part of that purpose (since all the affected third party libraries have their own objects for looking at memory), and it shows :P

Our near term goal should be to get memoryview in a good place for handling 1D contiguous data and throw exceptions (rather than crashing) for everything else. I think Antoine has achieved the former, but it sounds like there is still some work to do on the latter.
