I would like to use (again) the buffer interface, and I have some suggestions/questions.
- Only extension types can implement the buffer interface, no way for a python class. Maybe a magic method __buffer__(self) could be invented for this purpose?

- My bug report 216405 on sourceforge is still open (well, it is marked as closed, but it went into PEP 42) http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=216405&grou...
