Okay... it seems like it's not anything I wan't to do now. But I'll keep
it as a thing to do after my master thesis if the summer get's to cold
and wet :-)

All of my routines are "critical" but I guess not more critical than the
computation itself.

Do you really mean BLAS-bindings? Not the lapack bindings? I actually
thought that ublas was a BLAS-implementation for C++?
