   The only problem I see is that many of the libraries listed at
oonumerics haven't been under development for a few years. This could be
because the authors are happy with what they have and see no need for
further work on it or because they just stopped working on it. I have no
way to know that, but either way I would expect it to be hard to get
them involved in boostifying the work.
