You are right. I had forgotten that I had simple strided vectors working.

I wonder why PyArray_GETPTR1 is slow. Is it because of the implied integer
multiplication? Unfortunately, your approach means that iterators can become
invalid if the underlying array is resized to a larger size. Hmmh, perhaps we
could make this configurable at compile-time ...
Thanks for the code. Could you provide some benchmarks on the relative speeds
of the two approaches?
