or C array in the program which you would like to "adopt" as a 
matrix in Python. The only difference between this and a matrix created a
normal way is that you have to remember never to free the memory.
So it seems you might be able to do this if you had a method
of creation (from C) which took a pointer,size,type kind of 
description. You could then increment the reference counter one extra, so
that the memory is never freed, or a "don't free" flag could be in the
