This would be really good to remove the apparent confusion. Moreover, I
think cleanly explaining why using "np.matrix" is not a good idea *before*
announcing the news would encourage people to accept this decision along
the way. That would greatly reduce the sporadic "the devs are deprecating
stuff as they see fit without asking us" sentiment.
