[Python-Dev] cStringIO buffer interface

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, so I apologize ahead
of time if it is.

I was just curious as to why cStringIO objects don't implement the
buffer interface.  cStringIO objects seem similar to string and array
objects, and those support the buffer protocol. Is there a reason
against allowing cStringIO to support at least the read buffer
interface, or is just that nobody has considered it until now?
