You're right, that is better, odd how I never thought of doing it like  
that. I've been stuck in my Matlab-esque world with dstack() as my  
default mental model of how images/matrices ought to be stacked.

Am I right in thinking that b[0] is stored in a big contiguous block  
of memory, thus making the read marginally faster than slicing on the
