Well, further reading and pondering finds a decent discussion in the
boost::assignment library pointed to by Leon (thanks).

I think it would be possible to use that library to extend ublas to
perform assignment with the above blitz-like syntax. In fact, the
bootst::assignment library cites blitz as one source of inspiration.

I think this is beyond my skills and motivation at this time, but I
think it would be a good addition to ublas.

Thanks all,
