OK so we have several options here.

The easiest is to add a method interpolate(q1,q2,s1,s2) to Quaternion,
returning a Quaternion.
It could even take care of normalizing the result (i guess you want that too?)

Would that be enough for you?

Otherwise, if we need expression templates in Quaternion, well I think
I remember the big issue now: Quaternion already inherits
RotationBase, so it would mean multiple inheritance if it also
inherited MatrixBase. I didn't think more, so I don't know where to go
from here.
