When you want to use blas or lapack anyway, using the numeric_bindings (or numeric_bindings-v1) is a better idea than trying to roll your own bindings.

If you use the numeric_bindings as a general matrix and vector interface, you will basically inherit the continuous memory representations imposed by blas/cblas/clapack/lapack. Using a std::deque as "vector type" won't work then.
