Recent, not too successful, attempts at porting complex codes from FORTRAN
(e.g. linear algebra, optimization) support this option. :-}

Building a set of units test with expected values computed by that library
might already be a huge help in ensuring that the Java implementation is
bug-free. Hopefully, compiling and running the code will be easier than
trying to entangle a FORTRAN source...
