```If you don't care about elegance or efficiency how about:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
import scipy

a = scipy.array([ 0,  1,  2,  3,  4,  5,  6,  7,  8,  9, 10, 11, 12, 13,
14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31,
32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49,
50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65])

runs = 8
space = 4

b = scipy.array(a[1:runs+1])
for i in range(1,(len(a)/runs)-1):
b = scipy.concatenate((b,a[b[-1]+space:b[-1]+runs+space+1]),axis=1)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PS If you really meant to cut off the last three elements of a, i'll
leave that step to you...
