Description

Linbox has a sage interface, exploited by sage's linbox interface. This unpleasant situation (upstream had to be modified to fit inside sage) was necessary: Linbox is a C++ library heavily using templates, and at that time Cython was not capable of handling C++ libraries. Thus a C-only interface had to be built into LinBox?.

Cython has improved, and sage's linbox binding should now be capable of accessing LinBox? directly, removing the need for a dedicated interface upstream.
