[PYTHON MATRIX-SIG] type coercion one more time

   Only the following three automatic coercions are allowed:

   1) Any integer type can be coerced to a float, a double, a complex float or
   a complex double.

   2) A float can only be coerced to a complex float.

   3) A double can only be coerced to a complex double.

Sounds OK for me.

   This remains completely consistent with the existing python automatic
   type coercion.

Which is all I really care about...
