The implementation of std::complex is very slow, due to the complex limited
range (see `-fcx-limited-range`) feature. Numpy does not implement it, so we
have to conform to numpy's version.
Let's focus on the multiplication.

Are you kidding, I explicitly linked the Python division implementation!

So, Python/Numpy behavior and C++ behavior are different with respect to
complex multiplication. What we did is provide a std::complex<T> that
match Python/Numpy behavior. We cannot ask nt2 to follow numpy's
behvaior, so... we hijacked std::complex :-/

You have to ask NT2 to be able to supply your own complex implementation, hijacking std::complex is a no-no! (non standard I assume)
