[Numpy-discussion] A roadmap for NumPy - longer term planning

Do you plan to consider trying to add PEP 574 / pickle5 support? There's
an implementation ready (and a PyPI backport) that you can play with.

PEP 574 implicits targets Numpy arrays as one of its primary producers,
since Numpy arrays is how large scientific or numerical data often ends
up represented and where zero-copy is often desired by users.

PEP 574 could certainly be useful even without Numpy arrays supporting
it, but less so.  So I would welcome any feedback on that front (and,
given that I'd like PEP 574 to be accepted in time for Python 3.8, I'd
ideally like to have that feedback sometimes in the forthcoming months ;-)).

Best regards
