I'd rename the function views_share_base_data, make the loop to find the
base an inplace function, and break the long lines in the test.

It looks like the routine doesn't try to determine if the views actually
overlap, just if they might potentially share data. Is that correct? That
seems safe and if the time isn't much it might be a nice safety catch. But
it shouldn't go into 1.4.
