Hi Dmitri,

At this stage, uBLAS assumes that the matrix structure arrays (template argt
IA) are arrays of unsigned integers. Using signed integers may create
warnings. Using SuperLU, or Metis bindings creates warnings. It is something
we should work on. I even had a situation where a compiler errors was raised.
(I reported this some time ago.)
