I agree it may be difficult to add this in the initial refactorization, 
but I don't think it falls into the micro optimization category.

The whole idea of converting strided buffers into temporary contiguous 
areas is already in ufunc, though. Maybe a core API to do just that 
would be useful. I am not familiar with the ufunc API at all, so I am 
not sure how it would go.
