After listening to the arguments by yourself and Dag, I think I buy
into the idea that we should hold off on this until we have ufunc
views or something similar implemented.

Also, if we split off the matrix package, we can give other people who
really care about that (perhaps Alan is interested?) ownership, and
let them run with it (I mainly use ndarrays myself).
