Is this needed for something in our repos? We typically don't just arbitrary add libraries unless they'll be used for something.

This library is like sibling to GLM (https://glm.g-truc.net/0.9.8/index.html) which is already in the repo. It is very common to use both at the same time (for development, they are header only). I think it is good idea to provide both , this way we users will always have compatible libraries. Otherwise I must install the library by myself and in some point in time when you decide to upgrade that one in repo my stuff will crash.
