Before submitting the following as a bug, I would like to repeat what I
posted earlier (no replies) to check whether you agree it's a bug:

The "kron" (Kronecker product) function returns numpy-arrays even if
both arguments are numpy-matrices; imho that's a bug in light of the
proclaimed goal of preserving matrices where possible/sensible.

On a related issue, "eye" also still returns a numpy-array instead of a
numpy-matrix. At least one person (I think it was Ed Schofield) agreed
that it would be better to return a numpy-matrix, given that another
function ("identity") already returns a numpy-array. Currently, one of
the two functions seems redundant.

So unless somebody tells me otherwise, I will submit these two things as
bugs/tickets.

Great that numpy soon will be officially stable!

Cheers,
Sven
