Dear Thomas,

Certainly no cross product in uBLAS! The pedantic explanation would be that it
belongs in a 3D geometry library and not in a general Linear Algebra library.
Wikipedia defines it as a "cross product is a binary operation on vectors in a
three dimensional vector space"

I would be happy using a 3 line home-made function!
