#1619: Loading aligned dtype error
 Reporter:  Ihor.Melnyk      |       Owner:  somebody  
     Type:  defect           |      Status:  needs_work
 Priority:  highest          |   Milestone:  2.0.0     
Component:  numpy.core       |     Version:  devel     
 Keywords:  dtype alignment  |  

Comment(by mwiebe):

 I believe the align keyword can be well-defined, and C compilers in
 general have a consistent approach. The reason I really want this in is
 for in-memory calculations, where operations combining or manipulating
 aligned structured arrays should produce new aligned structured arrays,
 not throw away the alignment and force lots of extra copying and

 I'm not sure what the .npy format is doing, I wish it would have defined a
 NumPy + Python independent specification for the structure. I've fixed the
 repr issue, but the .npy format still breaks.
