Hi Brian,

For my part, I often know exactly what I want to use from GSL at compile

Not that GSL has performance problems, but writing a C++ templated
static version of the GSL probably would be a lot faster than the
dynamic. E.g. routines that require pointers to functions could be run
with function templates, which in turn could be inlined. One probably 
would not even have to know anything about the actual algorithms in
order to implement this.

Where would you recommend to start?
