No, the ordering of arguments will remain fixed for gesv (and for all other
low-level driver/computational routines). For solve, on the other hand, it
will probably be different, more something like

solve( A, B );
solve( A, B, pivots(i) );
solve( A, B, ... other optional args );

where the order of optional arguments does not matter.
