I'm considering this library for use in a future project. Mainly in
order to operate with C arrays as vectors. I try using it for a few
minutes and got the following concerns, sorry if they were brought up
· Operators don't work unless boost::la namespace is bring into scope,
couldn't ADL kick in?
· Could swizzling 'placeholders' be placed on a different namespace, so
I could write `using namespace boost::la::swizzling;` or similar.
Everything else looks nice so far. Hope you continue working on it
whether it gets into boost or not, its a really useful library!
