Thanks, Sven for the reminder and the proposals, which make sense to
Right now I'm busy finalizing native complex matrix support (to be
paraded out before long), but will get back to this when I can.
I would like to "ping" on this issue - the idea is that we would need to
have this in place before 2019d is released (or will it be 2020a?), such
that contributed packages can start relying on this extension next year.
Otherwise it couldn't be used before 2020a (or even 2020b) comes out.
In particular -it's not a secret- Artur and I have been working on a
partial wrapper for R's glmnet package. It's not finished yet, but
probably would be ready this Winter.
