> the original decision to exclude non 'C' views was deliberate

Seems this is reflected in the code:

a = np.array([[0, 1, 2], [3, 4, 5]])
mv = memoryview(a.T)
# True
mv.cast('i', (3, 2))
# TypeError: memoryview: casts are restricted to C-contiguous views

Is there any interest in revisiting that discussion? It seems the buffer protocol could allow more flexibility wrt strides and contiguous flags. Do you have a link to the discussion where this was rejected?
