      I had intended to provide feedback on that library, but once again
and unfortunately did not have time to do so.

      I just wanted to point out that the reason I was interested in it
is that I had been told (when it was in the sandbox, quite some time
before the review) it had the potential to help me simplify tremendously
my quaternion and, especially, octonion libraries, by providing a better
handling of input operators. So I would say (better late than never,
though perhaps it is now *too* late) that there actually *is* an
interest in input facilities.
