Interesting! I didn't know that GIL defined its own matrix. That the
link is broken, it refers to extensions not being there (so therefore
[2]). Which shows the potential fragility of extensions.

It is a good idea but I don't think we can or should copy this exactly
because we cannot rely on external sources. Anyway, we can implement it
using an uBlas matrix, or include it as an example (actually, that *is*
the way GIL does it.... So right...)

Thanks, Barend
