Thanks for pointing out this basic idea. I tried pointing this out to my
colleague yesterday (who insists that I solve my yet undefined problems
using matrix algebra, which is well greek to me). But the more I look
around, it seems that is a question no one wants to ask, and far less
answer. Most professionals get thrust onto a project, never being asked
to implement their own ideas from scratch (that's how programmers spend
80% of their time debugging other people's code ;-)
