[Numpy-discussion] Pickle complete (new ideas for Python arrays)

Pickling is now implemented for scipy.base (was calling it Numeric3)
Anybody wanting to tackle a function to read old Numeric and/or numarray
pickles is welcome. I think this could be all in Python. Ideally, we
should be able to read these pickles without having those packages
I think the PEP for Python should be converted to a bare-bones protocol
(e.g. the one that is emerging)
Optionally we could create a very simple default arrayobject for Python
that just has a default pickle implementation and knows how to get data
through the buffer interface from other objects).
That way any array implementation just has to talk the Python array
protocol to be interoperable with any other array implementation.
