Speaking of "matlab", is there a plan to add other functionality, like
machine learning algorithms (NN, SVM, ...), clustering, SVD, PCA, ...?
Does GSL support such functionality?

Or should I implement it myself when the need arises? :)

If by SVD your mean "singular value decomposition", there is already a function to get this and other solver functions will come soon.
A method for PCA ("principal component analysis" I suppose) is not in there explicitly, but can be built with the available tools and it should not be that complicated, once you have the covariance matrix.

Please let Francesco know whenever there are implementations of new features that are worth accepting into the main branch - it is always welcomed.
