It would be great if we could start uBlas2, rewriting the core maybe using proto for the template functionality and add all the goodies. As David says I also think a unified representation would help a lot in realizing the same algorithms for similar operations (i.e. dot product defined as the multiplication of a row and column matrix - using an already optimized matrix matrix multiplication algorithm). I am just a bit skeptical about vectorization though - mainly due to lack of language support and lack of in-core higher than double precision arithmetic (I think double precision is internally done in 96-bit on an intel cpu). Another item that would be very useful is opening the submission of auxiliary functions. It would be great if people could contribute their own SVD, or optimizer, or linear system solver etc., as I am sure most of as have a ton of those from one project or another. Of course keeping the template interface the same (if possible) for backward compatibility and trying not to hinder the bindings development would be of utmost importance.
