Dear Jesse and Rutger,

I am glad to hear about your serious interest of providing bindings for MTL4.  If I can help you with this please let me know.  Karl (Meerbergen) and I decided a long time ago to unify the interfaces of MTL4 and GLAS for the sake of seamless interoperability.  Unfortunately, we never found the time to realize this plan. 

Regarding Rutger's concern about the stability, it is true that I occasionally change some internals for better performance or a cuter interface but that did not affect basics like memory layout.  If there were some significant changes we can still adapt the traits.  This said, it is probably best storing them in a MTL4 subdirectory, so we can provide a consistent versioning.

I think that makes a lot of sense until we can get a high level of

possible since it seems to be a very active library.

It's quite easy to provide traits for mtl4. It's even easier if their code 
base would have been stable :-) What classes would you need traits for?
