(sorry for the formating)

(m, A42) *= 42

I don't see where this is against anything.

I have not suggested that.

See other post about how controversial seems to be operator,.

Well I was just replaying to one of the Q/A of the doc. You say that you
don't need []().
I say that on views it is the most clear thing when we use C++11.

BTW, qvm::vec and qvm::mat could provide the access operators as well.
