yes, and if we do this for Block too, then we should be safe with
swapping blocks. Currently the following works:

const MatrixXf m;


because swap has to take its argument by const reference (C++ mess)
and then the first thing swap does is to const_cast its argument.

But now, if "DenseBase::col(Index) const" returns a "const Block<const
Derived>" instead of a "const Block<Derived>", then in the above
example, the const_cast which happens in swap will return a
Block<const Derived> which is still const => compilation error and we
are safe :)
