Well, strictly speaking, both documentations say the same thing, but the old
version was somewhat obfuscated. Either svd returns v.H and A = dot(u*d,
v.H) or svd returns v and A = dot(u*d,v). I think the second is a clearer
statement of the return value and the resulting factorization, but I suppose
some may hold a different opinion.
