Hey Barry,

Thanks for putting this PEP together.  This is really helpful.

I didn't see discussion of PEP 3118 and it's features back-ported to 
Python 2.6.  I've already back-ported the new buffer API as an addition 
to the old buffer protocol.

In addition, I've planned to back-port the improvements to the struct 
module and the addition of the memoryview object (both in PEP 3118).

If you have questions, we can talk tomorrow.

Best regards,

-Travis Oliphant
