Comment(by nicki):

 Somewhere in CG, once per step, you'll find

     Ax = A * x

 or similar. Indeed, you can use any linear operator here, so there's not a

 At some _other_ points, inner products are calculated, e.g.,

     alpha = < z, p >

 And here's where the problem sits. Typicall you'll fine dot() or vdot()
 here, but one may want to use something else, e.g., vdot().real.
