Definitively. That could even be a great addition to Boost.uBLAS.
It's common practice in Matlab and R to generate random matrices.
However I think you're library could either be independant or part of
another one that is more generic (Boost.Range ? Boost.Containers ?) as its
purpose extend well over simply generating blocks and random values.
