the unit-storage support layouts for triangular matrices. I.e., given the
triangular types (of e.g. ublas' triangular)


and our very convenient matrix_uplo_tag, a matrix_diag_tag would be very
welcome as well.

Currently, in matrix_traits is says

// TO DO: add triangular, etc.

in addition, I'm having a hard time finding the specializations for
ublas_triangular. Or are these not needed?
