I don't think it makes much sense to change NumPy's existing usage of asarray() to asanyarray() unless we add subok=True arguments (which default to False). But this ends up cluttering NumPy's public API, which is also undesirable. The preferred way to override NumPy functions going forward should be __array_function__.

There are exceptions for `matrix` in quite a few places, and there now is warning for `maxtrix` - it might not be bad to use `asanyarray` and add an exception for `maxtrix`. Indeed, I quite like the suggestion by Eric Wieser to just add the exception to `asanyarray` itself - that way when matrix is truly deprecated, it will be a very easy change.
