Great! The added benefit is that the calc_work module effectively goes
away, at least in its current form. I've checked that the current versions
of the major platform-optimized math libraries all use 3.0 or greater,
including Sun's math performance library, Intel MKL, and AMD's ACML. If one
is willing to forgo vendor-supplied platform optimizations, then
ATLAS+LAPACK or just Netlib LAPACK should suffice for many users.
