Hello,We now have started the development of some functions for vectors sincea few weeks. All of them rely on the fact that the value_type's arenumerical value types (NumericValue concept). In the first documentabout GLAS we supposed that vectors and matrices only contain numericalvalues. I recall vague suggestions on the mailing list on expanding thevalue_type to other than float, double, std::complex<float>,std::complex<double>.Before continuing with any more new algorithms, it might be good to knowwhich other value_type's should be supported.

We need to use matrices and vectors of symbolic expressions in some of our applications, and it would thus be important that not only numeric values but any value could be supported. Why should there be a restriction to floating point and complex types only?
