I'm using ublas now very intensively and I'm very satisfied.
Currently, I'm using ublas in a elastic FE benchmark and it looks I'm on par
with the fastest fortran codes.
So I really would like it to be proposed in one of the next meetings.

If the next standard also adopts the C99 restrict, I guess we solved the
aliasing issue. Or am I missing soth.
What's the problem regarding initialisation (not taking into account the
std::complex as being discussed in the other thread) ?
