Thanks but I already know about vector proxies, and I don't think covers my

Let me rephrase the question, given the function add, that takes a vector
and a span (pointer + size)

ublas::vector<double> add(const ublas::vector<double>& v, const double* p,
size_t s)
    assert(v.size() == s);
    return v + vector_view<double>(p, s);

Is there something like vector_view already in Ublas that
1) does not copy the data pointed by p
2) integrates in the ublas expression template machinery as a vector-like

If there is not one already implemented, is it possible to implement one?
Is it enough if I model the "Vector Expression" Concept as described in
? Do I also need to inherit from vector_expression?
