very cool! then an excellent option if we can get it to work (make that you
can get it to work, I'm not doing squat in this effort other than

I think we discussed before having a check and error clause in

If we can to that, then there is NO reason not to put up binaries that

though maybe with OpenBLAS we don't need to anyway.

Thanks again to y'all for working on this.
