just wanted to say that I find this module, and shared memory in
general very interesting, because I work with very large image data

I have a non python question:
for Java there seems to exist a module/package/class called nio

   public abstract class MappedByteBuffer    extends ByteBuffer
   A direct byte buffer whose content is a memory-mapped region of a file.

Could this be used to share memory between   Java applications  and  numpy ?

Just hoping that someone here knows Java much better than me.
