Adding a grid based xarray data interface #713
As the title suggests this PR adds an xarray interface, which will allow working with large gridded datasets. It is not quite complete, so should not be merged yet, but it's functional and there are just a few more issues to iron out before I can add unit tests and merge it.
What's still missing?
If the interface is complete and we can support the upcoming xarray release (I suppose we can test against a dev version) then yes, I think it would be good to get in for 1.5.1.
