Well, this *may* not be the most efficient method for
implementing matrix multiply ;) My enthusiasm blinded
my common sense. However, I've also got this wild idea
that maybe template metaprogramming could maybe transform
an matrix multiply expression written this way into a
more efficient method. David (Abrahams), does this
seem at all possible? I recall you were considering
some sort of template library dealing with matrices
or linear algebra or something of that sort.
