I know about this rule (it was discussed a lot about GMM when we had a
copy of it), and that's why I intended to remove eigen from KDE SVN
after a few monthes (say after the 2.1 release).

I don't think it makes sense to stick strictly to this rule and remove
eigen immediately.

I just wanted to make it more convenient for KDE by letting a copy of
eigen there in the very short term. That will be helpful until eigen
2.1 (which kde 4.3 requires) is available.
