in my opinion a piece of software must be targeted to target users
(excuse for a pun)
i see a generic scientist as target user who already knows about
matrix calculus and may not know about blas
for such person writing
 u = A*v + w
is much more natural than that of blas terms
i think that user must focus on the design and the intent rather
than how to express the thing in blas terms

actually the code is 99% complete (and already working for my own
it is just to be customized for boost library
and there are minor changes to be made to the implementation
