Never had an issue with this and all my number crunching code is done
through metaprogramming (with vectorization, cache blocking...) So I have a
lot of complex template structures, and debugging them is easy.
Then, if someone doesn't want to do fancy stuff and uses templates a la
Fortran, it's _very_ easy to debug.

BTW, instead of Blitzz++, you have vigra and Eigen that are the new
equivalent libraries, and you may want to keep an eye on Intel's ArBB.
