Comment(by njs):
About the name: my original version actually was called logdet(), but I
worry that the expectation is that logdet() is -- modulo numerical issues
-- the same as log(det()). But this API doesn't act like that -- it
returns a 2-tuple, not a scalar!
About the other commentary: I'm afraid I'm totally missing something; I
don't know what you guys are talking about with 'inplace log' and
'log_absd(log(absd))' and such. Could you expand?
