Nah, leave it. You not only have to fix the descent in dimensions, you will
have to fix PyArray_From DescAndData (or whatever it is). I vote for simply
noting that x = array([a, a]) won't work, and keep it around as a reminder
of what a horrible mistake the current Matrix implementation is. The code is
difficult as it is, and if we keep this up it will start looking like
windows with 15 years of compatibility crud.
