Excellent, thanks for the link.

I don't know what DDP and MPC mean. As for convex optimization, this
is something that a few people have requested already in the past, it
sounds like a very useful thing. Moreover the pure-templated nature of
Eigen means we can add modules, even in the base Eigen distribution,
without negative effects on people not using them. So I'm in favor of
it, if we can have a good convex optimization module.

Sounds great :)
