You should not interpret lack of comment as lack of interest.

I am sure I am not the only one in lurk mode on this issue.

But to come to a collective view, we need a working system with at least some

Most importantly IMO we need many examples to show the very many scientists
(unprofessional programmers) how it works in practice, and how it helps them
write error free code. Barton and Nackmann and NIST work has showed how it
might work, but not the elegant portable and flexible solution that now looks


PS For me, implicit conversions are usually a bad idea: quick but dirty.
