I've now studied this a bit more carefully.
I'm still daunted by the depth of templating,
but I can see what you are trying to achieve.
I see some compile-time costs as well, (like SIunits)
but the run-time cost looks bearable (in comparison
with the overall computation required by many of the
The whole thing looks a bit daunting, but important
to do the many jobs where you would have to output
intermediate results into a math tool like Maple,
to get a math function, and then suck results back in
- clearly impractical and too slow to be useful.
It seems that your interface may avoid raising
hurdles for the naive user who expects only
but I think some more examples would be reassuring,
and I'll try to propose some for your 'treatment'.
