Not to mention all the pain of making sure the arrays are wrapped and
stay wrapped in the first place. In particular in combination with other
I wasn't saying this is absolutely needed, just that it'd be a really
convenient feature helpful for caching. Sometimes, introducing fast
caching this way can remove a lot of logic from the code. Introducing a
Python-space visible wrapper object kind of defeats the purpose for me.
