Numpy.histogram is implemented in python, and is a little sluggish. This
has been discussed previously on the mailing list, [1, 2]. It came up in a
project that I maintain, where a new feature is bottlenecked by
numpy.histogram, and one developer suggested a faster implementation in
Would it make sense to reimplement this function in c? or cython? Is moving
functions like this from python to c to improve performance within the
scope of the development roadmap for numpy? I started implementing this a
little bit in c,  but I figured I should check in here first.
