afaik not in numpy's terms, because two numbers are given for the
dimensions -- I also struggle with that, because I'm a matrix guy like
you ;-)

ok, good point; with your x then diag(x.A[:,0]) should work, although
it's not very pretty. Maybe there are better ways, but I agree it would
be nice to be able to use matrices directly.
