True, but:

1) Having special-cases for the most common cases is not such a bad idea.

2) could one use some sort of templating approach to get all the dtypes 
and such that you want?

3) as for number of dimensions, I don't think to would be to hard to 
generalize that -- at least for contiguous arrays.
