Does anybody know of a package of functions and operators that can deal
with partitioned matrices? Example: 
mat_a = [ a b ]    mat_b = [ d c ]
        [ c d ]            [ b a ]
where a, b, c, d are matrices (although not necessarily defined) of
appropriate dimensions. Then I can do MULT[mat_a,mat_b] and get
mat_c = [ a d + b b    a c + b a ]
        [ c d + d b    c c + d a ]
without any attempt of changing the order in the products defining the
elements of mat_c, because they are matrices, obviously.

I already explored the wolfram web site and didn't find anything.
