[Numpy-discussion] Float16 and PEP 3118

Hi Folks,

Now that the float16 type is in I was wondering if we should do anything to
support it in the PEP 3118 buffer interface. This would probably affect the
Cython folks as well as the people working on fixing up the structure module
<http://bugs.python.org/issue3132>for Python 3.x. There is a fairly long
thread about the latter and it also looks like what the Python folks are
doing with structure alignment isn't going to be compatible with Numpy
structured arrays. Thoughts?
