Hi,
I would like to use the matrix functionality but I, like others, get by 
without it.

+1 to Tim's and Nadav's comments. As Tim said, there should be seamless 
integration between concepts of vectors and matrices - after all there 
really no distinction between them in linear algebra.

-2 for having rowvector and columnvector - both numpy and I should know 
the orientation, if not, I deserve garbage or an error.
0 for vector - I don't see the need for it as a unique entity but 
understand the simplicity of saying vector.

Yes, I agree that talk is cheap but it avoids wasting time on code that 
will not be used and allows time to understand what people really want.

There were some arguments on this list what/if should be dome to correct it. I welcome any attempt to build a code that demonstrates an alternative.
