If we use it (matrices) they will build it.

All of the big problems I've run into while using matrices have been
fixed within hours of posting the problem to the mailing list.

So for anyone who wants better matrix support, all you have to do is
start using matrices. The rest follows naturally: send any problems
you have to the list and answer any questions you can from new matrix
users.
