Dear Jesse,

getting these low-level routines working will probably be realistic.

The interface is a somewhat more difficult issue. It is also something you
could help us with, e.g., by proposing high-level function names;
associated argument keywords, what's optional/required, how they address
the low-level routines, etc.. I think a high-level interface is easier to
keep stable than the low-level stuff. I am willing to help with a timely
implementation of these high-level functions.

If you're looking for numeric bindings that primarily have a stable
interface, please check the non-development numeric_bindings-v1 in the
sandbox. However, I'm not sure if it supports all the routines you
