I suppose it depends how rich an interface he wants on the Python
side. The two methods you named are sufficient for a lot of cases
(almost everything, in fact), but if he wants slice support or
__setitem__, it might still pay off to use the container suite. I
don't know - all of that C-style array stuff looks like doing things
the hard way to me.
