As someone who is just starting to experiment with numpy, may I ask, what
in general is the expected result of
numpy.linalg.inverse(integer_matrix)?  Since not all such inverses are
integer matrices, what does it mean to "honor the matrix input type?"  Is
there a matrix analogue of Python's integer scalar division?

Thanks, but of course a.I should work, right?

Thanks again,  it would be nice if you could help us by checking out an
SVN version before a release ;-)

But, better late than never.

Also, show-stopper might be a bit of an over-statement.   A dumb error,
yes.   But, if you really depend on this, then it's a simple fix to
place a from numpy.lib import * at the top of the linalg.py file.
