Like Martin said, a missing feature. I'd also quite like the mmap
module to have a C API, but as my use case is especially evil (
) I'm not going to push that hard :)

I'm not entirely sure about this, though. Does
work? AIUI __setslice__ and __getslice__ are out of favour these days
(not sure though).
Any patch to fix one of these would probably also fix the other almost
as a sside-effect...

turned a perfectly normal healthy individual into a great political
or military leader better than irreversible brain damage.
