This report outlines design goals and criteria for a new version of ELLPACK for shared memory multiprocessors. We discuss several specific issues in detail, and suggest paths for further work. An example is given which illustrates some of the tradeoffs necessary in parallelizing a large and complicated mathematical software package such as ELLPACK. We also raise several important questions that must be dealt with as packages such as ELLPACK evolve along with modern high-performance architectures.
