I am more interested in exploring MTL as a potential next matrix
librarychoice, and without the bindings it would be very difficult for me to
make the move. I think that my immediate needs would be fairly simple.
Dense matrices with symmetric and triangular traits. However, don't
consider my interests a high priority.
