Last year we had a small test about the coding skills and the odeint
library. We will use this test this year again. I will sent it with a
separate private mail.

Implicit routines require to solve linear systems. I think, the main
difficulty is to integrate these linear solvers into odeint such that
they are exchangeable like the existing algebras and operations. This
would be a good foundation to implement implicit routines and I would be
happy if the BDF method could be implemented. Of course there are some
other easier methods (implicit Euler) which could be implemented first.

Prerequisites are a solid knowledge of the C++ template systems and a
basic knowledge of the implicit algorithms.
