Just wanted to provide some closure to the subject, the Eigen
developers provided me with a workaround that allows to store
expression template operands by value instead of by reference, and
they in fact opened a bug to better support the use case I brought up
I am also following your suggestion to use transforms, since right now
I'm mixing proto::eval and some transforms, but as I finally
understand transforms a little better, it seems they can simplify my
code quite a lot in this case.
