Just warning that nditer is pretty low level (i.e. can be a bit mind
boggling since it is close to the C-side of things).
Anyway, you can of course do this just iterating the result. Since you
have no buffering, etc. this should work fine. There is also
`np.nesterd_iters` but since I am a bit lazy to look it up, you would
have to actually check some examples for it from the numpy tests to see
how it works probably.
