Nice point about the Fortran, and also about the C++. :)
I'd have to say I'm convinced - if there's a vote about such
module joining Phobos, count me in! :)
But really, when you look at it - the ndslice has made it to the
Phobos, now it's probably natural to have some more extensive use
of it in the standard library. Linear algebra stuff could be
build nicely on top of the ndslice, you agree?
