Here's a version that makes sure the fastest varying version stays aligned
if the keyword argument 'imagealign' is True.

After a lot of trial and error I got it working. The trick is aligning the
very first element, and adding the right amount of padding to each row.
The length of each padded row has to be myltiple of the itemsize and the
alignment boundary.

It seems to work. If you find bugs, please correct.
