In libs/numberic/doc you will find LinearAlgebraConcepts.html which
describes the high-level concepts for linear algebra operations. We do not
yet have concept documents describing vector and matrix traversal. Perhaps
I can whip ones of those out soon. Perhaps Walter could also write up the
concepts for the interface he used in uBLAS so we could compare them.

Yes these things would be nice to have... and they will be there for the
finished product, we just have a long way to go.
