OK, I see one question you raise:

+#  TODO: Should this be all currently supported implementations?
+#        See User-settable variables above.

Since we see this only in the context of installing dependencies, it
makes sense not to limit the list by default. If the user selects a
package that insists on a certain BLAS, it should normally get it
installed as dependency, like the others.

So I say yes to your suggestion and I don't see further items that need
discussion. We know that TODOs should be dealt with … but adding
external MKL, for example, should come after introducing the BLAS
support at all.

Thanks for working on the file while I enjoyed a brief time out;-)

Alrighty then,
