Comment(by david.warde-farley):

 If it's an array, I rescind my objection to the inplace log. Could be
 worth it especially for big matrices, and it's

 As for naming, I agree that logsigndet is a bit long. I kind of like
 `logdet` and `slogdet` or `logdets` for the version that returns the sign,
 kind of like `eigh` is a special kind of `eig`.
