We need both, a traditional as well as a Clifford Algebra library.

Indeed. However, currently I don't understand the different purposes of your
library and the GluCat library from Paul Leopardi. Is their any colaboration
behinde the scene? Wouldn't it be fine to bundle efforts into one future
Boost Cliffort Algebra Library? Is there any communication to the other people
working on the topic, especially the Gaigen group?

With best regards
