Thanks for this good feedback. Does SUNDAILS code help in constructing
modular solvers like this? It is certainly desireable to create tools
that allow solutions that are easier and faster for the user, but I was
not sure exactly what direction was wanted.
The only real hindrance to incorporating code from SUNDAILS is time and
issues of "code-bloat" (i.e. making sure we just grab pieces that are
really solving new problems, or solving them differently). I'm also not
opposed to replacing solvers in SciPy with better solvers if
functionality is not lost.
