Actually - uBlas is not the best choice if you are looking for (small)
fixed size vectors and matrices. uBlas is optimized for dynamic sizes.
Thus bounded_storage provides a limited but still dynamic storage on
the stack. In order to efficiently support fixed size object we need a
fixed_storage class and real fixed_vector and fixed_matrix.

Note: In order to store a lot of 3D-vectors you should use a 3-column
row major matrix. Thus you can easily express mappings as matrix vector

btw. you should have a look at tvmet:
