Comment (by tzito):

 I agree that copying should be handled internally. But still, why is
 pickle messing up the alignment of a perfectly aligned array? As a user I
 would not expect an obscure performance degradation on a ''normal'' array.
 OTOH, the internal copy for discontinuous array is fine.
