Perhaps if memoryview doesn't understand the format code, it can fall back on memcmp() if strcmp() indicates the format codes are the same?

Otherwise we're at risk of breaking backwards compatibility with more than just array('u').

Also, if it isn't already, the change to take format codes into a account in memoryview comparisons should be mentioned in the What's New porting section.
