Being also an R programmer, I like the functional approach with free
functions. It also makes sense from a template point of view.
It's indeed a 'cat' or 'c' we need. In R for example, you also have rbind
and cbind for adding rows or columns to matrices/data.frame and 'c' for
anything which looks like a vector. It's very convenient to use.

For a ublas::vector, it seems pretty obvious. For a matrix? Or a tensor?

Awesome. Could you create a branch in the git and push your code on that
branch so that we can start playing with it/
