OK - I just usually search-engine my way to a solution   :)

Right on.
At the moment, my thoughts are:

1. the data must get read into a faux-matrix std::vector container, which I
suppose has to be created before assigning the data to it

2. it should have m rows - the number of vectors to process, and m columns - the
first 3 are x, y, and z, and all the remaining columns are zeros

Then hopefully I can use that lesson to apply the SVD output to the data in the
SDL scene.

There's hardly any data in the header file - I'm assuming that can just be added
to the top of the .cpp file to keep it all self-contained.
