For myself I am pretty much sure that Boost.Fusion will be an essential part of
my Quan library, therefore I reckon I am going to rework the dot product
example, as a matrix example , but using the Quan components, as it seems daft
to have to make 3 versions of everything. So, anyone that wants to try the
examples will have the Quan CVS dependency for the moment. I may as well start
promoting Quan AFAICS!

Quan promotion warning.......

 Quan, The serious library for modelling and manipulating physical quantities in
C++. Download Quan here ( Note: for the fusion stuff you will need to download
