That's... too bad? I'm not sure what your objection actually is.

It's an intentional change (though disabled by default in 1.8), and a
necessary step to rationalizing our definition of contiguity and
stride handling in general, which has a number of benefits:

Why do you care about the stride of an array with only 1 element,
where by definition you never use the stride?
