Yup! We'd need this library because a SimpleV-capable math library doesn't
exist, we need to build one. We can share the implementation costs with Rust's
std::simd (which also wants a vector math library without libc, libm, or OS
dependencies for use in Rust's `core` library). In particular, this means the
math library will have generic vector-length-independent implementations
written in Rust.
