Maybe I'm being a little obscure, you get a symmetric matrix when
it's evaluated. Let's just expand it out fully (for a length 3 real
vector) v = <a,b,c> assuming that we ignore the inner product and the
factor of 2 (scalars).

Note that the components above and below the diagonal are the same.
In BLAS (or indeed boost::ublas) this would be a matrix of symmetric
type (or Hermitian if complex).

 From my humble experiences, thinking you've finished means you've
only just about figured out what the problem actually is!
