There definitly should be a matrix library as well. But as neither ublas or
MTL3 are ready for prime time, I really hope we'll be able to propose a
matrix lib the meeting after this one. Such a matrix library is really really
necessary for all numerics work. Once this is in the C++ standard, I see no
reason for scientists to stick with Fortran.
