wonderful!

well, maybe -- but there is a lot of call for pure-computational linear 
algebra. I do hope you'll consider building the computational portion of 
it in a way that might be included in numpy or scipy by itself in the 
future.

Have you read this lengthy thread?



and these summary wikipages:

Though it sounds a bit like you are going your own way with it anyway.
