Hello Florent,

my first remark is that blas (and lapack) routines are data_storage
dependent. In other words, the routines assume things on how to iterate
over the data. So, if a routine works with a dense storage layout, like
trmv, it will not work with a packed storage layout.

That said, I think there are blas-routines for some blas-unsupported
packed storage structures available somewhere in lapack, but we don't
have bindings for those yet. If you want efficient computations, go with
non-packed storage.

I will check, but I think the above will hold true for most of your
"DOES NOT COMPILE" statements. It shouldn't compile.
