Can I access local value in Data objects from python?

Yes, but I don't recommend to do this!

This little script shows you how to do this:

     in=Data(..)
    out=Data(..)
     for i in xrange(in.getNumberOfDataPoints())
           in_loc=in.getValueOfDataPoint(i)
          assert isinstance(in_loc, numarray.NumArray)
          out_loc=< some operations on in_loc>
          out.setValueOfDataPoint(i,out_loc)

Notice that in_loc and out_loc are numarray objects with same ranks and shape like in and out. in and out both need to be defined on the same FunctionSpace.
