This one is a quite big challenge because it is tightly coupled with
multi-threading. Basically, fixing it before having find a good and
scalable solution to parallelize all products with less as possible
code redundancy means doing the work twice.... :(

Currently, not that general matrix-matrix and matrix-vector products
are already ok with respect to no malloc for fixed-sizes. Only special
products have yet to be fixed.

I'm think it is more reasonable to postponed it for 3.1 since I'm
still not really convinced by my current choices.

yeah, we'll see who's first ;)

this won't be needed for any stable 3.0 module, so we can postponed it.

I'll check it.

This one would make a good "junior" jog, so if someone want to step
by? Otherwise I'll do it, np.
