[SciPy-user] xSYMM from BLAS-3 in scipy?

Hi all,

I'm running a pretty recent CVS of scipy, and I'm needing to use the blas3 
xSYMM routines (dSYMM, specifically).  I notice they are not there, and after 
poking around a bit, it would _seem_ like extending the xGEMM wrapper 
shouldn't be too hard.

But since I'm not at all familiar with this code, I'm a bit afraid of breaking 
too many things, and right now (with scipy'04 coming up and 2 talks yet to be 
written :)  I don't have the time to write the necessary tests to make this a 
committable change.

Is there anyone out there who has wrapped the rest of the blas3 routines?  A 
quick scan (by tab-completion and source study) seems to show that the only 
blas3 stuff wrapped is xGEMM.  At least having xSYMM, xHEMM and xTRMM would be 
great, though I guess at some point we should try to have all of blas3.  I can 
try to do this at a later time, but it would be great if someone already has 
this kind of code available.
