My pleasure.

It's on my list of good things to do, along with 500 other items.
It's been moving towards the top, since I'd like to be able to use
Matplotlib with Pyvox.

I really like the idea of having a common underlying protocol for all
multi-dimensional arrays; I'm still looking at the details of this
particular proposal.

Also a good idea.  PIL supports many more image file formats that Pyvox
ever will, so interoperability would be nice.

Sounds good in theory, but I'm a bit unsure on the practical details.
A good starting place would seem to be a common N-D array protocol.  Do
you have any other specific suggestions?
