Well, I see how this could be handled using iterators that maintain proxy objects. The challenges would be keeping the overhead low enough and finding the right abstraction boundary. For instance, if my goal is to rearrange data to make it contiguous on the axis over which I wantto operate, I don't want you to hide that from me. However, it would be nice if I could use the same interface for constructing a contiguous proxy from different input formats and datatypes.
