As a Mac user I would be annoyed if we only supported MKL and not
Accelerate Framework. AMD LibM should be supported too.
MKL is non-free, but we use it for BLAS and LAPACK. AMD LibM is non-free
in a similar manner. Acelerate Framework (vecLib) is a part of Apple's
operating systems. You can abstract out the differences.
Eigen is C++. We do not use C++ in NumPy, only C, Python and some
Cython. C++ and Fortran can be used in SciPy, but not in NumPy.
Apple's reference is here:
AMD's information is here:
(Vector math functions seem to be moved from ACML to LibM)
Intel's reference is here:
