Interesting idea. I think Anne's suggestion that sliced assignment
will reduce to an efficient memcpy fits my needs a bit better than
memmap because I'll be pushing new N x P samples into the array that
will be arriving while the monitor is running.

Actually, I'm hoping sliced self-assignment is as efficient as memmove
(i.e. without creating temporaries), since the dst and src are
overlapping, but I haven't tried it yet to confirm if this is
relatively efficient.

Thank you both for your ideas,
