To be clear: a patch allowing to optionally use BLAS or LAPACK as
backends for certain operations, would be welcome, as long as it
doesn't require the whole design of Eigen to get more complicated.

But I meant that the core design of Eigen is essentially fixed now for
the 2.x series, so there won't be many big "design decisions" in the
foreseeable future.
