I definitely agree that it would be very advantageous
for C++ to have a standard matrix interface.
Currently it is difficult
to write any matrix libraries / algorithms,
because you have to reinvent just another incompatible interface.
Fernando Cacciola corretly pointed out that there is some
overlapping with OON,
on the other hand, the emphasis of boost and OON is different.
For my purposes, I wrote a simple matrix adapter for std::vector
that I use as a kind of OO-interface to IMSL C Math,
if there is some interest, I can post some code.
