I'd like to ask if this is confirmed by the standard since I will be using
ublas on several paltforms with agressive optimization flags
(like sse/mmx extension on ia32, -fastmath, .... )
BTW, I'd prefer to have an zero() function, that sets a matrix to zero,
instead of clear(). clear() should be used to free allocated memory.
For sparse matrice a zero() function could just call clear().
For a dense vector using std::vector I'm not sure, since it would disable
calling LaPack routine after clear(), since the memory will be free'd.
