The problem here is the workarounds in the numpy code, which we would have
to maintain. I am against messing with the numpy code just to accommodate a
matrix class that shouldn't have inherited from ndarray in the first place.
So I am OK with backing out the changes as long as we also leave all the
bugs in place.
