I find the notation M.setConstant() odd, because in for example

double y = ... something not constant.

MatrixXd M = ...

M.setConstant(y) // <--- y is not a constant!

I propose adding an alternate method:

M.fill(y)

It doesn't overload the meaning of constant, is shorter, and has obvious intent.

Thoughts?
