Yesterday, I suggested to add workspace3. No reactions so far. I have
started the implementation in boost.sandbox, but I want agreement with
the ml before continuing.

That is the case for the bindings I am familiar with. It is determined
by the value_type.

Often it is different for real and complex, but not always.
The mixed case you refer to is probably the Geev case where you can pass
real or complex eigenvectors in the real case. But it should not have an
impact on the workspace.
