The only way to know if it's nicely designed is to let people
experiment with it. Hopefully, with a beta release more people will
start using it, and if something is really wrong we can still fix
before the RC.

I'd like to avoid doing so. It's rather confusing for the users, but
we can still keep this option in mind depending on how things go.

yes, same here. I've already a local fix for 483. The non trivial
feature enhancement entries can be moved to next 3.3.

I suggest we keep it for now, and announce it will the last release
with Eigen2 compatibility support.
