It's great that you are working on this!  It sounds sensible at first
read to me.  We will have to think about the static/dynamic library

I definitely would like to see review and feedback from other people who
pay attention to HPC/blas things.  I know there's at least one :-)

2019Q1 is nominally due to be released by this coming Sunday (being the
last day of Q1).  It's always up to the person running each freeze, but
as a rule we do not make big structural changes in the day or so before
the freeze, especially if they haven't been up for review for a while.
A change this big should have at least a week for review.  So I do not
see any of this getting into 2019Q1.  That's not criticism of what
you've done in any way, but merely a statement that big changes have
risk, and stable branches are about reducing risk.

Separately from review and consensus, soon after 2019Q1 is cut is a good
time for possibly disruptive changes, since there is then a few months
to sort any issues.
