This does not address my main point, which was about the general style 
of maintenance: no releases for years in spite of new features being 
fully implemented and merged. mtl-2.3 could have been released two years 
ago; it could be released now, postponing new stuff that isn't complete yet.

I would rather have questions that cannot be answered, than answers that
cannot be questioned.  -- Richard Feynman
