However, we don't have any examples of the buffer API / memoryview
object working with something else than 1-dimensional contiguous char
arrays (e.g. bytearray). Therefore, I suggest that Python 3.0 provide
official support only for 1-dimensional contiguous char arrays. Then
tolist() will be easy to implement even without using the struct module
(just a list of integers, if I understand the functionality).
