I've often thought that one of the few really legitimate uses for
operator overloading was to add vector/array ops.
Getting back to the original topic, a set of C++ classes that handled
APL style array operations and automatically parallelized them on
vector processors would be quite neat, and would actually be a
legitimate use of C++ (unlike the very wide variety of illegitimate
uses of the language.)
