For extra geek points why not implement an entire algebraic
simplification engine to do appropriate vector calculus transforms
first [*],

Like a red rag to a bull!

Seriously though, I get the feeling that if one's too clever it will
become impossible for the user to know what they are actually doing -
therefore a simple expression that would normally be carried out by a
single BLAS / LAPACK style library call could end up being de-
optimally represented by a set of other calls.
