Same repository, different branch. The master branch, which is a
couple months old now, implements the matrix and vector types on top
of a single, list-based, length-agnostic structure type. It's a
snapshot of the moment I realized the volume of code and run-time
loops were becoming a problem.

The new code is in the dev branch. It implements just the vector types
in a manner similar to generic interfaces while also exposing a
progression of increasingly type-specific variants. This allows me to
prototype with a generic API, then eliminate the overhead of dynamic
dispatch later by switching to more type-specific operations. (If it's
not obvious, I'm working toward a pluggable type system harness, so
the compiler can specialize and prune automatically.)

This is good news! Through March, I'll be announcing several graphics
packages that could benefit from this directly. Let's try to keep a
conversation going.
