In fact, I'm thinking of adopting numarray for my pytables project, but I
don't like the fact that data is not natively aligned inside recarrays, i.e.
there is not a gap between the different fields even if datatypes doesn't
match the "native" architecture alignement. IMO this can affect very much to
the read/write efficency when one wants to work with data rows or columns of
Are there any plans to support this "natural" alignment in addition of the non-
alignment schema present right now?.
