Okay, thanks.  Next point of confusion:  does that mean that in the example I gave, the object 'n' (the memoryview slice) needs to know about *two* distinct Py_buffer structs---one to pass back to releasebuffer and one to store its own information?  It seems to me that these can't be the same, since (a) the Py_buffer for the slice will have different shape and stride from that returned by getbuffer, (b) what's passed back to releasebuffer should be identical to what came from getbuffer, so we can't just modify the shape and stride information in place.
