Re: [isocpp-lib-ext] Restoring row and column vectors to the linear algebra proposal

  My $.02, in many domains, there is a semantic difference between a row
vector - a (projective) hyper-plane - and its dual: a column vector - e.g.
a projective point.
Having the vector ambiguous could cause semantic ambiguity and
unit-violation style errors multiplying points as planes and vice versa.
There is the whole issue of Affine Spaces which interact (and wrap) vector
spaces. But that discussion is beyond the scope of this thread.

Keep up the good work,
