will likely come out somewhat behind in benches.
b) How does eigen do say, 4D rotations? I thought it did only 2D and
I don't know if rigid transformations make sense for 2D.
At any rate, 2D transformations are trivial.
c) Inverse would be good, I agree. You just need to do take take the
conjugate of both the quaternion parts.
d) For equivalent Transform object, rotation matrix and translation
vector are provided. Will look into generating equivalent transform
