There are several options to licence Intel MKL (free or community licence)

is the best way to package packages depending on it, e.g. numpy or pytorch?
The current numpy/scipy requires openblas. But I think it might be better to
compile numpy/scipy against the standard "unoptimized" lapack/blas and the
uses can switch to other optimized lapack/blas such as openblas/mkl at
runtime using "update-alternatives"?

Sincerely yours

We can't support MKL using update-alternatives because it isn't
open-source. The rules of OBS forbid us from distributing it. So there
are really only two choices, an unoptimized version using lapack and
an optimized version using openblas. I don't see an advantage to
shipping the unoptimized version.
