OMG, that API is about as awful as it gets. Obviously it is written by
two computer scientists who do not understand what scientific and
technical computing actually needs. There is a reason why many
scientists still prefer Fortran to C++, and I think this proposal shows
us why. An API like that will never be suitable for implementing complex
numerical alorithms. It will fail horribly because it is *not readable*.
I have no doubt it will be accepted though, because the C++ standards
committee tends to accept unusable things.
