I know it's slightly radical, but at the same time, the ublas authors
have made no efforts to integrate with the Boost community and if
their library is *still* holding back progress after all this time,
IMO it should be dropped. Unlike Boost.Threads, IMO, it can still be
maintained as a project outside of Boost... which is sorta what
happens anyway IIUC.
