   Since I'm just getting started with these libraries I've nothing to lose
yet. Guess that I'll run find and delete all Numeric references just to be a
bit cleaner about it.

   FWIW, my need is to use the eigen() function on a symmetrical matrix to
calculate the principal eigenvector. If there are any potential 'gotchas' I
certainly would appreciate knowing of them.
