Well..., if it is good enough, then why not merge into core eigen
directly, instead of unsupported if mark will be maintaining the FFT
backend/kissfft part of FFT for foreseeable future.
At any rate, stuff merged into development branch, never committed to
stable, can always be removed from the devel branch at a later date.
After all, there is *no* guarantees whatsoever on the unstable branch.
If we have the docs for it (part of eigen-unstable-docs of course),
putting it into eigen-devel will get much more testing done. ATM, I
don't think it has been tested in the wild yet. At least the FFTW
backend can be in eigen-devel, since it is fairly small and benign.
