How should SymEngine be cited?

@ChrisRackauckas I think just cite the GitHub repository for now. We plan to submit a paper eventually.
@ChrisRackauckas definitely let us know how it compares against Mathematica, and if possible, share the benchmark with us. We want to especially hear if it is slower, so that we can work on speeding it up.

Alright. This won't have a benchmark. Citing that I am using you (well, will probably switch from SymPy by tonight) for calculating Jacobians.

@ChrisRackauckas, I've started on matrices here, https://github.com/isuruf/SymEngine.jl/tree/matrices

Most of the functions don't have safeguards, so doing something like asking for m[1, 3] of a 2 x 2 matrix would segfault instead of giving an error.

I'm going to sleep now. Will have a look tomorrow, if you haven't already by then
