Hi. I am working on numpy in pypy. It would be much more challenging for
me if you merged more code into the core of numpy, that means even more
must be duplicated when using a different underlying ndarray

If you are thinking of touching linalg/lapack_lite/blas_lite, I would
prefer a simpler model that uses ndarray as a simple storage container,
does not use cpython-specifc capi extentions with reference counting,
and interfaces with python via cffi[0].

Could you be more specific? Numpy is pretty tightly bound to the cpython interface, changing that would require a fundamental rethink/redesign/redo
