You're right. It's not a big problem if people get KDE accounts and
only contribute to an unsupported/ directory of Eigen.

_if_ KDE sysadmins ever complain about that, it'll be time to
reconsider, but I shouldn't try to hard to anticipate that. I seem to
remember to have been told not to worry about that.

In the meanwhile, I thought of another issue: preservation of SCM
history across repositories.
