I don't think it is fundamental, merely a question of what is needed
and works easily. I see two problems with multi-d numarray fields, both
1. Multidimensional numarrays must be described in the recarray spec.
2. Either numarray or recarray must be able to handle a (slightly) more
complicated case of recomputing array strides from shape and
I didn't design or implement recarray so there may be other problems as

I don't think it's a priority now. What do you need them for?
