I think it would be mainly educational. It's easier to understand
the whole (multi-dimensional) point of PEP-3118 when there's a
concrete object that you can play with. Of course serious users
would go straight to NumPy.

The other issue is that's it's slightly strange to have a fully
featured memoryview with no object in the stdlib that can utilize
all features (at least the testing side is now complete).

Anyway, right now I don't know myself if I'm for or against it. :)
