No, what tile does cannot be represented that way. If it was possible
you can achieve the same using `np.broadcast_to` basically, which was
just added though. There are some other things you can do, like rolling
window (adding dimensions), maybe some day we should add that (or you
want to take a shot ;)).

The one case where np.tile could be done using stride tricks is if the dimension you want to repeat has size 1 or currently does not exist. np.broadcast_to was an attempt to make this stuff less awkward, though it still requries mixing in transposes.
