Hi guys,

I proposed a Google Summer of Code project for uBLAS.
It's based on the wish list that has been done some time ago a long time

The main idea is to refactor vector into matrix to have only one internal
and external representation, one set of algorithm. As a convenience, the
class vector<> will still exist and will, for example, be by default a
row-vector (like a simple C-array would be). Or a column-vector if we
prefer but I think matlab is row-oriented by default (and I hate R which is
column oriented, even if I use it every single day at work !!! :-D :-D ah
ah ah ah ! Let the flame war begin).

OK, the idea behind this is to have a clean framework to enable
optimization based on SSE, Neon, multi-core, ... you name it.
I'm sure the student who will work on that will take inspiration from boos
t::bindings, Eigen, Armadillo, etc...
The project is very open, so suggestions are most welcome.
