Hi,

Having read that it is possible to basically 'copy' elements along an axis without actually copying the values by making use of the strides, I wonder whether it is possible to add this as an option to np.tile.

It would be easier than having to use as_strided or broadcast_arrays to repeat data without actually replicating it.
