....except that the tests are still failing at runtime,
Eigen::Transform<Scalar, Dim, Mode>::Transform(const
Eigen::Transform<_Scalar, Dim, OtherMode>&) [with int OtherMode = 32,
_Scalar = double, int _Dim = 3, int _Mode = 2]: Assertion
`OtherMode!=Projective && "You cannot directly assign a projective
transform to an affine one."' failed.

I'm going to write to the list about tightening our commit policy (i'd
like to request that we run all tests before pushing anything, etc).
