One quesiton about the code:
why is Blitz::hull() all inline in the header file, when it's private (so it's never called directly
anyway by anything else than blitz.cpp)?
In fact why not move it completely to the top of the .cpp file and remove any mention of it
in the .h file (i.e. make it file-static instead of class-static)?
The same applies to all static private method from blitz.h: I would suggest to put as
little as possible in the public header files; only the public API.
