I think a fixed-size matrix class would be a great GSoC project. Or base of
a larger project for the really ambitious student :). Many extra points if
it is able to piggy-back on Joel's SIMD library. Lack of good fixed-size
support is one reason I abandoned uBLAS.
Who and why would use the fixed size matrix class?
This seems like a strange question coming from a game developer. Fixed-size
matrix can be dramatically more efficient since you can stack-allocate it
and make optimal use of SIMD instructions. I use Eigen2's fixed-size
vectors/matrices all the time.
