Well, there is the __array_struct__ method that should return a C-Object 
pointer with all the information in it about the array.

To see how to use this look at the Numeric or numpy code (do a grep on 
__array_struct__ and you will find the relevant sections of code).

I noticed that the Pyrex cookbook had an example with using the generic
