No experience. :((
Just looked a bit.
For what I saw there're few features with respect to uBlas, such as:
* cursors.
* the use of "parameters" as template argument for matrices (reduce
the number of template arguments)
IMO these feature only does not motivate a transition from uBlas to MTL4.
It does in case MTL4 performances outperform uBlas's ones.

I've also looked a bit to GLAS library.
Maybe we need to take it into consideration as the ublas successor too.
