Why not using a set of vectors and a matrix view of them?

this class has a data() function which returns a reference to the
storage array (which is a vector<vector<double> >)

So you could use as an iterator of vectors.


(Additionally you get a very fast swap() of column references compared
to swapping all the elements)

Alternatively you could sort the indices of the columns instead of the
real columns and use the ublas::matrix_indirect view for further
