Thanks:) I don't have a windows development environment, but I sure would 
welcome all feedback. I sure want eigen2 to at least compile with various 
compilers. As for speed tests, if some minor tweaking can improve performance 
with VC++, let's do it. For instance, if VC++ has a direct equivalent for 
gcc's __attribute__((always_inline)) then let's define EI_ALWAYS_INLINE to be 
that, in the case the compiler is VC++.
