[Numpy-discussion] Does NumPy support indirect memory views?

PEP 3118 [1] allows exposing multi-dimensional data that is organized as
array of pointers.  It appears, however that NumPy cannot consume such
memory views.

Looking at _array_from_buffer_3118() function [2], I don't see any attempt
to process suboffsets.   The documentation [3] is also silent on this issue.

What is the status of indirect memory views/buffers support in NumPy?
