Need more comments from scientific community on python-dev

I'm recruiting more comments on python-dev regarding my two proposals 
for improving Python's native ability to share ndarray-like information.

There is a dearth of scientific-computing and number-crunching-aware 
people on python-dev.  The result is that I sound like a lone voice 
arguing for something that nobody cares about.  When, I don't think that 
is true.  Please, please.  If you want Python to grow support for the 
array interface (or something like it), then please speak up on 

Even something as simple as I really see the need for a way to exchange 
data-format information between two objects sharing the buffer protocol 
can be helpful.

You can post through the gmane newsgroup interface:
