[SciPy-Dev] Consensus on the future of integrate.ode

Please, please don't implement anything in the SciPy ODE solvers with Boost.
odeint unless it's a separate interface that requires extreme generality.

Boost.odeint uses Boost.uBLAS for its linear algebra (see
and Boost.uBLAS is slow because it tries to be general (everything is
templated), and it has debugging features added by default.

A lot of users (myself included) don't need that generality, and would
prefer the extra performance that you'd get from a code that can use a
faster dense linear algebra library (like an optimized LAPACK, Eigen,
Elemental, maybe MTL4).
