Hello Milosz,

in theory the LAPACK bindings generator could also be tweaked so that
scalapack stuff is auto-generated. It could even use the same lapack
interface if the traits would be made aware of distributed/parallel

Which begs the question: what kind of containers are you considering? Would
be awesome to have a nice set of C++ containers for use with PBLAS/ScalaPACK
(preferably ones that also work with GPU-memory models :-)).
