I think which technique (copy or view) is better depends on the situation. If you are making a large temporary slice, a view may be more efficient. But if you are making a long-term slice and don’t need the original any more, a copy would allow the original memory to be freed early.

Do you have any use cases? You can already get a kind of slice view into bytes etc by using memoryview().
