Sorry for the noise, I made a mistake.

Actually, the problem is NOT that the triangular solvers do not check
for existence.

By the time we call the triangular solvers, we are sure that the
triangular matrix that we pass to them is invertible, so that there's
no need to check for existence.

Actually our solve-with-check does more or less the right thing, it's
just that I don't know what formula to use for the precision level
that it uses. I guess i need to make experiments... *grumble* that
takes time

so i'm no longer advocating removing solve-with-check, only make it
have another name than just solve.
