I admit I don't performed any test about performance and/or numerical
stability between LAPACK and other third-party libs.

However, I think that having it implemented would be a good added
value to this library for 2 reasons:
* It would be a full LAPACK binding lib
* It would help to write norm function for lib not yet supported and
that possibly does not provide a such function.
