Dear Maik,

Peter and I will look into this. I am not sure that GLAS and MTL have
the same goals, but there is a large amount of overlap, especially in
the algorithms and containers, which should clearly be exploited.

Bindings are indeed useful. They are used in GLAS for interfacing with
the BLAS.

Best wishes,
