I think this is an interesting example. How would these two classes
work in practice in C? For example, how would one pass a non-const
matrix (taken as a view of a non-const multi-array) to a function
taking a const matrix argument. Dealing with the interaction between
const and non-const arguments is a fundamental issue.
