Hi Folks,

Now that the float16 type is in I was wondering if we should do anything to support it in the PEP 3118 buffer interface. This would probably affect the Cython folks as well as the people working on fixing up the structure module for Python 3.x. There is a fairly long thread about the latter and it also looks like what the Python folks are doing with structure alignment isn't going to be compatible with Numpy structured arrays. Thoughts?
