Yes, in principle that's what `mir-glas` is supposed to offer, 
but the current the benchmarks only cover lubeck (which doesn't 
use `mir-glas`), and as you say, `mir-glas` itself is not 
feature-complete when it comes to linear algebra APIs.

If anyone does get round to trying to benchmark functionality 
from `mir-glas`, note that you will have to pay quite a lot of 
attention to optimization flags if you want to get best results.

Yes, I would imagine that might also be part of it.  Again, I 
would anticipate that being something where D ought to be able to 
readily implement similar features.
