One more note related to OpenCV which outputs histogram into
N-dimensional structure (Mat, SparseMat, OutputArray).
It is useful to calculate multi-dimensional histograms (e.g. hue-saturation).
I imagine GIL should also allow that too, but OpenCV interface could be better.
Is multi-dimensional histogram the most common, primary use case?
Is histogram of grey levels the most common use case?
If I want a histogram of grey levels, I should not be forced to deal with
any multi-dimensional structure, any matrix.
I should be able to get a histogram in as simple form as
std::array<int, 256> or std::vector<int> or similar,
that is objects with minimal necessary interfaces
and optimal memory management
without unrelated 2-dimensional bloat.
p.s. Debabrata, I'm posting this also to let you test the mailing list,
hopefully you will be able to respond to this.
