These buffers are all the same size and type, so it would be easy and convenient pooling them in order to avoid excesive creation/destruction of arrays (consider that thousands of them are acquired and released per second, but just a few dozens used at the same time). But first I would like to know if numpy implements some pooling mechanism by itself. 

I don't think so.

Sounds like fun.
