This particular separation of two components felt somewhat artificial to me.
 For the iterator buffering, as an example, I initially thought it would be
good to use the same default as the ufuncs do.  Instead I ended up just
using a hard-coded default.  I think the error handling policy in the ufuncs
could also be useful for computations in the core.  This can't be changed
while maintaining ABI compatibility, though.
