Let me see if i understand you here.  Since the type of the array is 
bascially handled by the
PyArray_Descr*  structure.   Are you suggesting turning that into a 
full-fledged PythonObject with
new type?   I had thought of this before since it's basically calling 
for us to do something like that.  Or do you have something else in mind?
