Well, first you made me think I had completely lost it when I
programmed that -- your solution is indeed short and elegant. But then
I remembered why I needed it:

Matrix<float, Dynamic, Dynamic, NoRealloc> A, B, C;

A.reserve(16); A.resize(4,4);
B.reserve(25); B.resize(5,5);
C.reserve(81); C.resize(9,9);

B=A; //this should work and resize B to 4x4
B=C; //this should raise an assertion failure

To achieve this behaviour, we do need a dedicated class -- or an
option, such as in the patch.
