Please check out the latest development version from SVN: see
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/BoostSubversion and have a look at
experimental/sparse_view.hpp, class c_array_view. This class should
fulfill the immutable part of storage array concept. Now only a class
fulfilling the immutable part of the vector concept must be developed
which can be used to present any storage array as a read only vector.

Why not using norm_inf or norm_1 for matrices?

I'd also suggest to use norm_inf or even better a customer function that
aborts the check at the first nonzero element.

Could you prepare a list of the most used matrix functions? Maybe there
are others interested. Then we could easily add a matrixtools header
which contains such methods.
There is a trac for boost: https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/
Here you can view, comment and create new tickets. Feel free to create a
feature request for uBLAS. Try to add an example or pseudocode to
express the expected usage.

The quickest way is always do it on yourself and to post the patch, an
example and a unittest here. Then I can review the code and commit it to
the repository.
