What is the status of the multidimensional arrays PEP?
<http://numeric.scipy.org/PEP.txt>

It seems to me that there is one part of the PEP that can be easily
separated into a rather uncontroversial PEP.  This is the part that
defines array protocol.  Python already has a (1-dimensional) array
object in the standard library. Python array already supports buffer
protocol and it looks like implementing full array protocol is
straightforward.

I believe that having an object that supports array protocol even
without multiple dimensions will be immediately useful.
