Nice, thank you.

I've remoced the checks in my ublas version without problems.
I just want don't want to pay for the extra copy after calculating
a matrix product, e.g. with P rectangular

 A = P * QM;C = ... Q; Q= A; can be discarded now; return;

so I calculate

 A = P * QM;C = ... Q; Q.swap(A); A can be discarded now; return;

Is there a better way to do this within ublas without using swap ?

Of course, I can use pointers of matrices, e.g. smart pointers, but that's
unnecessary complicated. ( BTW, that the way I currently handle my
matrix_range problem mentioned before. I have to switch to .reset(..) now.)

Best wishes,
