Subject: [boost] ublas questions

Happy new year!
I have couple of questions on uBlas.
1) On the boost user guide I read:
"However unbounded_array is aimed at optimal performance. Therefore
unbounded_array does not model a Sequence like std::vector does".
I do not quite understand this statement. An std::vector is memory
contiguous and access happens by offset. How can an unbounded beat this?
2) In the matrix<> template class I cannot find the concept of leading
dimension. E.g. in a row major matrix 3x3 matrix the lead dimension could be
4, meaning that in reality I have a 3x4 matrix, but I just use a 3x3 (i.e. I
have some slack at the end of each row). Is there a way to specify it? This
is the way BLAS and LAPACK are designed, and it becomes particularly
important when using hi-performance implementation of BLAS on x86, like
Intel MKL, which require 16-byte alignment of each row. I thought about
allocating a larger matrix, and then taking a range on it, but that does not
seem the natural thing to do.
Thanks a lot.
