Something i dont understand: why do we need to use a trick to make a compile-time parameter to look like a runtime one ?
Why not (as is done in other parts of eigen) do corner<TopLeft>(3,3) and makes this explicit ?
(The trick could still be used in the eigen2 compatibility stuff to keep the old api)
