You might also be interested in how NT2 does it with its table class.
It mimics the matlab interface (which numpy also does), so you can do
funny things to get partial views etc.
Storage order of each dimension, size of each dimension, starting index
of each dimension can all be specified as template options, a size of -1
meaning a runtime size.
It can be resized at runtime, and number of dimensions can be reduced,
since it treats tables with N-1 dimensions the same as tables of N
dimensions with the last dimension being of size 1.
