Better late than never!
I'd like to see a memory object that allocates and deallocates blocks of memory and exports a pointer to its memory. It could also set privileges such are read/write, etc
It's all there, in bufferobject.c. Except that the functions are not exposed to python...
I'm with Thomas too. I could have used this a number of times, and have even resorted to simple methods in my own .pyd files that wrap these APIs - eg, win32file.AllocateReadBuffer() used for overlapped IO.
So while I think Thomas' bug is valid, I also understand we have to somehow handle the issue the array module has.
