Bug#400312: ITP: xmds -- eXtensible multi-dimensional Simulator

  Programming Lang: C++, XML
  Description     : eXtensible multi-dimensional Simulator

XMDS is a numerical simulation package that integrates equations, from
Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) up to stochastic Partial Differential
Equations (PDEs). You write them down in human readable form in an XML file,
and it goes away and writes and compiles a C++ program that integrates those
equations as fast as it can possibly be done in your architecture.

The discussion about packaging XMDS started from the upstream author's
request sent to the debian-science mailing list:

The Debian files for a preliminary, working package can be found in the SVN
repository of the pkg-scicomp prokject at Alioth:
