I'm curious as to whether or not anyone has reviewed the documentation
update I made here.


Having both memory views and buffers in 2.7 (as well as the C-level API
for each) is confusing. The initial bug report was to implement consistent
behavior for objects supporting the new C-level buffer API or to update
the docs. As new features are not being added to 2.7 (as pointed out by
Stefan Krah), I made an update to the docs that I think made the disparity
between the two (and when one should favour the usage of either) a little

ŠBut maybe I'm off my rocker ;)

Also, are contributor agreements also required for documentation?
