suppose i'm a not too experienced programmer and i want to express that
my function foo() takes a column vector as a parameter
considering 'matrix' and 'vector' be distinct types i would write:

    void foo(const lib::vector<some_type> &v);

it is type safe and the intent is very clear
as foo() author i know that i get v.size() by 1 matrix (actually a vector)
and can access elements with subscript operator[]
it is common and it is among the first things every programmer learns

how would i deal with generic matrix?
