I'm not trying to knock your work, but it's not clear to me that
there's enough room between readarray/writearray/tofile/fromfile and
pytables to accommodate another package. Maybe I don't see what your
package does, but why wouldn't I just install pytables instead? What
are its advantages and disadvantages compared to pytables?
