interesting stuff. Although I think it is promising, what exactly does it
have to offer over existing matrix libraries (and uBLAS for that matter)?
IMHO, for a next generation C++ linear algebra library to be really
successful, I think the following properties are desired
* split containers from expressions
* split algorithms from expressions, i.e., enable pluggable/customisable
back-ends into the expression templates
* achieve performance of FORTRAN-based programs (dominant in HPC)
What do you think?
