Boost is targeted at being portable and thus not dependable on other
libraries. I think the library should thus be self-contained.
However, I also would prefer to be able to configure the library such
that internally BLAS is used. This way we combine the convenience of C++
without wasting all the effort already done on optimising BLAS.
