Actually, the google summer of code is not a bad idea! Perhaps it is
worthwhile pursuing.
Though the application starts tomorrow - not sure I'll have the time for it.
Also - I have found one of those attempts to make direct replacements of GSL
(and CERNLIB) in C++

However, still, the type is usually double - and cannot be parameterized.
So there is still room for this project....

Huge coding job. GSL uses a great deal many C constructs and extensive
macro hackery to accomplish what C++ does with templates and

While I personally would love to see GSL in C++, the porting task is
almost a complete rewrite.

It might be worthwhile to submit at least a partial rewrite of GSL in
C++ to Google's summer of code programme...
