I am pretty sure the code is in the history, if you are patient enough
to look for it in git history. I can't remember why I removed it
(maybe because it was not faster ?).

I was thinking about the possibility to give the iterator a shared memory pointer, to open a door for multiprocessing. Maybe it is better instead to provide a contiguous ndarray object to enable a sanity check.

One could ask for an optional buffer (if NULL -> auto-allocation). But
I would need a more detailed explanation about what you are trying to
do to warrant changing the API here.

cheers,
