Is there some actual proposal for the simple API?

Maybe we could start from a basic structure, that contains the minimum
number of features (TBD); something that would not hurt implementations
like the efficient 3-dimensional matrices talked about some time ago.

Then maybe that more featureful matrix classes could specify additional
functionalities through the implementations of "interface"s, like
Then we could retrofit the currently exisiting matrix classes by just adding
the appropriate "implements" clauses.
