Serves me right for responding to the list without catching up on
reading it first...

Yes, that was exactly my point.
And by the way, I didn't really mean to imply that the OP (Andreas)
really shouldn't roll his own library (although I probably said
that, or something like it). He should, because it's a very
instructive exercise. It wouldn't be such a bad idea to have
one, or even several, small matrix libraries in Boost. It's just
not a suitable thing for standardization.
