Great, I think it can be quite useful for some people. I think only
some documentation is missing.

Also, very minor complaint, the way it allocates shape, strides and
the format string in __getbuffer__ is weird and complicated for no
good reason. I think it's better to declare two Py_ssize_t scalars or
one-sized arrays as class attributes and one char[2] array, and use
those (then you can also get rid of __releasebuffer__).
