Sounds good to me. I also delayed MATH-196 and think will also do this
for MATH-177 (minimization).

I am still working on linear algebra (SVD ...), but progress is slow due
to scarce time and the fact I want to use a better algorithm than the
classical Golub-Reinsch one.

Solvers for stif ODE are an important addition I would like to put in
2.0 too. We may consider the Adams-Moulton method added recently is a
first step towards this and mode it to a "stiff" package. A few more
methods would be needed though.

We could also merge a lot of Mantissa packages with few changes if time
allows ...

I would like to see 2.0 come out as soon as possible, so am reluctant to
a 1.3 release that would be time consuming. I already use 2.0 in some
important stuff (see if you are interested) and
the fact it is not released yet bothers me.
