The problem with you syntax is that you can't have : continuous dim => non continuous dim => continuous dim. For this reason, I prefer serge syntax which will require nothing from user point of view (except more compilation time).

For information, "ndarray<long,2>, contiguous_slice, slice" is auto generated, user syntax is still "long[][]"

perhaps export could add some syntax to indicate #contiguous dimensions?

Rather than
ndarray<long,2>, contiguous_slice, slice

I do like the other ndarray syntax of <type, #dim, #contiguous dim>

    Yo all,

    I think that when we register a specialization for an ndarray, we
    automatically register a version for each possible slicing. For
    foo(int[][]) now generates:

    void foo(ndarray<long,2> const&);

    but it should also generate something like

    void foo(numpy_gexpr<ndarray<long,2>, slice, slice> const&);
    void foo(numpy_gexpr<ndarray<long,2>, contiguous_slice, slice>
    void foo(numpy_gexpr<ndarray<long,2>, slice, contiguous_slice>
    void foo(numpy_gexpr<ndarray<long,2>, contiguous_slice,
    contiguous_slice> const&);

    some meta-programming fun on the way :-)
