comment Algorithm to find N nearest points to point
+1 for k-d tree. I don't know about Java implementations, but the Python/C implementation in scipy.spatial.cKDTree is insanely fast, ever for 100 nearest neighbors to a couple hundred thousand points.

comment What is the purpose of arcpy.Array()?
I think @crmackey is right. You can see this in the source of the Array() class in C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\arcobjects\arcobjects.py and the ArrayMixin() class in C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.1\arcpy\arcpy\arcobjects\mixins.py (replacing 10.1 with whatever version you have).

comment Cutting a circular buffer via Arcpy
@EmilBrundage Nice script! One alternative for ArcGIS 10.2+ is to use the buffer() and cut() methods of the arcpy.Polygon class to perform the geometry operations instead of using geoprocessing tools. This shouldn't affect the output, but it is probably faster.
