following Karsten, who as usual was faster than me, I would like to propose a
second GSoC project for odeint. I would like to see more computational
backends for odeint. Namely one could add parallelization backends based on
OpenMP or MPI, also an SIMD backend would be really nice. Each of these is not
too much work but altogether it makes a reasonable GSoC project I would say.
Especially as I will work in this direction for the next months as well.
What should I do to publish the project? Edit the wiki page or send something
to google directly?
