Emdw restructure

Emdw code restructure

Johan du Preez and I are in the process of restructuring emdw with the following aims:

  1. easier integration with external libraries and projects, less reinventing the wheel
  2. more use of Boost (less reinventing the wheel)
  3. moving our tests from PatrecII to Google Test
  4. moving our linear algebra and matrix libraries from gLinear and PatrecII to xtensor
  5. removing gLinear and PatrecII as external libraries
  6. easier housekeeping and modularisation
  7. separating core components from work-in-progress
  8. support for clang and cling
