 It would be great if the fromiter function in numpy took a shape argument
 rather than a count argument and interpretted its input as n-dimensional
 iterator of iterators of iterators (etc) of values instead of a 1
 dimensional iterator of values.

 Right now to add two dimension values, for instance you need to use a
 custom dtype which gives you a recarray like structure, which is not
 always what you want.

 I've looked at the code.  It doesn't look too involved but would require
 someone more adept with reference counting than myself.
