That might be overly restrictive.  What about fast incremental code
that is not array based (ie it is real time streaming rather than a
post hoc computation on arrays).  Eg, a cython ringbuffer with support
for nan, percentiles, min, max, mean, std, median, etc....  Eric
Firing wrote a ringbuf class that provides this functionality that is
very useful, and this packages seems like a perfect place to host
something like that.
