If I wanted a fairly specialized routine and didn't want to touch the guts
of numpy, I would pass the aligned array to a C function and use the data
pointer. The python code would be just a high level wrapper. You might even
be able to use ctypes to pass the pointer into a library function. It's not
necessary to code everything in C using the python C API.
