> I read again some remarks about alignement, it was suggested to provide allocators providing an address aligned to a requested alignement. This topic was already discussed in #18835.

The alignement issue is really orthogonal to the calloc one, so IMO
this shouldn't be discussed here (and FWIW I don't think we should
expose those: alignement only matters either for concurrency or SIMD
instructions, and I don't think we should try to standardize this kind
of API, it's way to special-purpose (then we'd have to think about
huge pages, etc...). Whereas calloc is a simple and immediately useful
addition, not only for Numpy but also CPython).
