that's great new ! It's very nice to see Eigen2 starting to be used
here and there...

For this example I don't expect any improvement from expression
templates, these vectors are much too small for that. The compiler is
smart enough to optimize that itself. On the other hand the
vectorization might help a bit, sure.

yes that would be cool to know what is really needed here such that we
can focus on that part first.
