Boost :

I am confused about the scope of a numerical integration library. It
seems that three things are being mixed up here:
i) 1D integration of a function with xpoints determined by the
algorithm (e.g. Romberg integration)
ii) Integration of first order ODEs by some algorithm (e.g. RungeKutta)
iii) Forward Euler integration of an ODE with fixed step witdh delta_x
and values of the derivative, given by some external function.
While I agree that both i) and ii) would be interesting libraries, the
usage case iii) which seems much discussed does not warrant a separate
library in my opinion.
