Re: I want to merge some BLAS updates to get things in a future-proof shape before the branch. Please review.


nobody explicitly said 'stop'. So I'll merge what I announced and will
adapt/test the two NumPy packages. Especially, since …

… all the other cblas-using packages are in WIP anyway.

To make things more funny: NumPy doesn't even use headers from CBLAS at
all. So there is nobody in current CVS who cares about the BLAS headers
that I replace.

This point in time is early enough to do this change, where it doesn't
have much impact anyway. We'll move forward with packages that might
want to use more BLAS stuff, with C API, in the future. For example,
stuff that explicitly uses gslcblas comes to mind. The footprint of
BLAS infrastructure is going to grow.

Alrighty then,
