Oops, that's added now.

The aligned case should just be a matter of conditionally removing the
NPY_ITER_ALIGNED flag in two places.
The new code also needs support for the reduce operation. I didn't look too
closely at the code for that, but a nested iteration pattern is probably
appropriate. If the inner loop is just allowed to be one dimension, it
could be done without actually creating the inner iterator.
