the question is: if we had support for it would it
be used? since we already have BLAS for low-level
stuff and LAPACK for mid-level stuff, and the gmath
and gpde libraries, and the ccmath library built in,
it starts to feel a little crowded.  But if it is
the right tool for the right job I would not want
to deny someone to easily use it.

what advantage does ATLAS bring to the table?


ps- does any one know if the equivalent of the
"jobs" and "wait" shell commands exist for
launching modules from python?
