I think it's not really intended, but it's a limitation by design.
AFAIK, it's related to Luca Citi's recent "ultimate base" thread - you simply
cannot ensure serialization of arbitrary ndarrays in this way, because they
may point to *any* memory, not necessarily an ndarray-allocated one.
(Think of internal camera framebuffers, memory allocated by 3rd party
libraries, memmapped areas, etc.)
