I have no idea if this would help or not but as a data point
enthought.tvtk.tools.mlab shows why the ability to use numpy with VTK
is so convenient.

  https://svn.enthought.com/enthought/browser/trunk/src/lib/enthought/tvtk/tools/mlab.py

enthought.tvtk.examples also has the following cases
array_animation.py, animated_texture.py and tiny_mesh.py that provide
some simpler examples of this functionality:

 https://svn.enthought.com/enthought/browser/trunk/src/lib/enthought/tvtk/examples

The point is, this functionality is both useful and highly desired by
users.  Getting the extended buffer/array into the core would
encourage the use of such functionality.

HTH.
cheers,
prabhu
