[Lapack] ISO C99 complex double qeustion

Greetings.

ISO C99 standard defines the "complex double" data type. Why LAPACKE C
does not directly use it and introduces the "lapack_complex_double"
type ?

When working with the native "double" data type, LAPACKE accepts for
example "double *x". It would be much more practicable for users if
complex types like "complex double *z" were accepted too.

(BTW, I am finding similar problem in CUDA, CUBLAS.)

Thanks.

Martin Konopka.
