   I think we should try to stay out of the business of making a linear
algebra system (or a tensor algebra system, either, for that matter) on
this project. Careful though should be given to the interaction between
the units system and popular algorithms for doing algebraic
manipulations, but that should be the extent of it for now. Otherwise,
we have a small and probably otherwise busy group of people trying to do
a collection of very large jobs all at once. This doesn't strike me as a
recipe for success.
