If you're mostly interested in the Sparse module, note that it's still
considered experimental, although it is probably going to become
stable (i.e. API stability guaranteed) in about 6 monthes as Gael is
currently working on potentially making KDE 4.3 rely on it.

Np, actually my main concern regarding licensing is to allow everybody
to use Eigen just so we don't have to deal with any licensing issues.

That's how I meant the LGPL when I chose it.

If you ever find that the LGPL doesn't allow you to use Eigen then
tell us and we'll consider relicensing.

If it turns out that the BSD does provide the same back-contribution
guarantee in our case, then why not add it as a license choice (so
we'd triple-license).
