Yo all,

I think that when we register a specialization for an ndarray, we should
automatically register a version for each possible slicing. For instance
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> const&);
void foo(numpy_gexpr<ndarray<long,2>, slice, contiguous_slice> const&);
void foo(numpy_gexpr<ndarray<long,2>, contiguous_slice, contiguous_slice> 

some meta-programming fun on the way :-)
