What would be helpful...

currently we lack the possibility to create solvers and
preconditioners in a general fashion. We are moving towards a state
where many components can be configured using the parametertree. I
consider a parametertree based factory for ISTL an important step
towards a usable solver component.

The following steps are

- cleanup the solvers/preconditioners to fully use abstract interfaces
- update solvers/preconditioners to use parametertrees for the
- introduce a factory class. I have a ParameterizedObjectFactory lying
  around, which can instantiate previously registered classes.
- add an ISTL library which provides precompiled
  solvers/preconditioners for the most common data types.

- write a suitable solver backend for PDELab which allows to create
  solvers dynamically
- add infrastructure to combine 3rd party components for the parallel
  commmunication with dynamic object creation.
