[Numpy-discussion] Relaxed stride checking fixup

Hi All,

Currently numpy master has a bogus stride that will cause an error when
downstream projects misuse it. That is done in order to help smoke out
errors. Previously that bogus stride has been fixed up for releases, but
that requires a special patch to be applied after each version branch is
made. At this point I'd like to pick one or the other option and make the
development and release branches the same in this regard. The question is:
which option to choose? Keeping the fixup in master will remove some code
and keep things simple, while not fixing up the release will possibly lead
to more folks finding errors. At this point in time I am favoring applying
the fixup in master.
