No, Its not a good idea.

Eigen is a linear algebra library (or atleast thats how most people think about it).
why should a full fledged nonlinear least squares library be included in it?
based on eigen is a very  loose term. we use eigen extensively, but thats not the only thing we use.
let me rephrase, Ceres is a large and complicated dependency.

If it has a better LM, and if that LM is based on eigen, it would
definitely be a great option to move it to eigen, don't you think ? The
same for the other generic algorithm there might be there.
