Thank you David.

Good to know that uBLAS is still alive :)

What I like to have in uBLAS is a richer math library like we have in
I've already begun a similar project some time ago, to use in some research
It uses the wonderful boost-numeric_bindings libs to interface with LAPACK.

Unfortunately I have too few time to maintain it and to provide
boost-quality code.
Anyway, if someone or some GSOC student wants to contribute, the code is
available on GitHub:
