      No problems at all!

      I have checked in yesterday a modified version (added guarded
using directives at namespace level and ifdef them out of functions; did
that a bit fast and perhaps not entirely in the best possible way) of
quaternion_test.cpp and of octonion_test.cpp, where I believe lies the
problem, but did *not* check in the modified special functions files, as
the modification on these later files where not needed for the
quaternions and octonions and might break things for Gcc 2.95.x.

      I will only check in the modified special functions files after
the imminent release. This will pose a problem too, as a bug report
filled via sourceforge for one of these files will therefore not be
addressed in this release, but I find it a lesser evil, and it has the
advantage of allowing me time (without causing any further delay to the
impending release) to give valarray support to all existing special
functions, beyond the one I have done (which is something I want before
embarking on the new fonctions I promissed a while back), and hopefully
to ifdef out the bits that could possibly upset Gcc 2.95.x.
