Could you please elaborate on the last part? We are using uBlas for a robotics application and the
typical size of a matrix tends to be pretty small(around 6x6 typical, 35x35 maximum). So it doesn't
really make sense to use atlas which tends to be effective for large matrices.

I'd like to try out what you mentioned to see if we can use it to boost performance a bit.
