This would be really nice to have.  I tried recently to use the unsupported matrix power, and ran into a number of segfaults for very simple matrix powers:

#include <iostream>
#include <unsupported/Eigen/MatrixFunctions>
int main()
  Eigen::MatrixXcd A(2,2);
  A << 1, 1, 4, -2;
  // Segfaults:
  //Eigen::MatrixPower<Eigen::MatrixXcd> Apow(A);
  //std::cout << Apow(3.1) << "\n\n";

  // Segfaults:
  //std::cout << A.pow(3.1) << "\n\n";

  // Segfaults:
  //std::cout << A.pow(3.1).eval() << "\n\n";

  // Segfaults:
  //Eigen::MatrixXcd B(2,2);
  //B = A.pow(3.1);

I use matrix power a lot, it would be nice if this worked in Eigen.

Actually this entry is about coefficient-wise power, see the function signatures. So let's continue your issue on bug 614.
