Oh goody it's just like Christmas!
>*This is also your last chance to make any major design changes to the
*>*system. If there's something about how NumPy works that you really don't
*>*like, speak up now while I'm still willing to sacrifice backward
*>*compatibility.

I think someone may have answered this once allready, but if so I
forget what they said:
Why is the imaginary component of a matrix M M.imaginary while that of
a complex number Z is Z.imag. There have been several simple functions
that I've writen that wouldn't have cared whether they were dealing
with matrices or numbers except for this.
Am I missing something obvious here...?
