Yes, all these functions that take a ptr/ref to result should be
template in the result type, you're perfectly right.

Indeed, but that part (Inverse.h) is the trickiest of the current
solve API refactoring (btw, sorry for being slow) for reasons i'll
explain, so it's the part that i'll do last. The problems is that
these API changes go together with a reformulation of the problem of
"checking for existence of a solution" and the case of inverting tiny
matrices is special here.
