Thinking of it again, I agree with you.
I was looking at the BLAST specs to get some inspiration but found no similar
operation directly (of course you can get the same result doing m*= 0 but
this is doubtly the best way to do it).
On the other hand, as Kresimir pointed out, a clear() on a vector sets the
vector's size to zero whereas it sets all entries to 0 in a ublas matrix.
