I think the idea is to have pluggable "blades" that can be interchangable and reconfigurable for a task. So if you had a problem that required vector processing, you would remove all your scalar components (scalar based blades) and plug in components geared for vector processing (vector based blades). I assume the computer or compiler would figure out which part of the program to send to each component. So the idea is to be easily reconfiguration for whatever your problem happens to be.
