	I hate to argue like this, but let me ask an irritating question. Why
do a lot of people use C/C++ for heavy computation if they could do it
with MATLAB (cost is not always an issue, and a number of these people
aren't necessarily dealing with huge datasets)?

	I doubt the reason for most of them is that they don't know about
vectorize.
