How about:


  Special Interest Group for Built-in Matrix Types

    There is growing interest in using Python to interface with
    mathematical and scientific computation libraries.  A commonly
    needed data structure is a matrix of homogenous low-level objects,
    such as numbers.

    The purpose of this special interest group is to develop a
    proposal for and possibly coordinate the implementation of a new
    Python built-in Matrix type.
