I think keeping getData() will do the job. I generally do not like to 
store the result of a calculation in the original matrix, it always 
confuses me. If the content is of a different type, the name should be

I have plugged in the EigenvalueDecomposition class from JAMA, which 
works fine for the PCA and CPCA modules. They do have a whole set of 
decompositions, and they might be easy to implement in the package (if 
they are free to be used).
