I just realized that myself, going directly in the sources: that's how I found 
that the ndmin argument was available in the Python interface.

Yes, Matrix objects are tricky beasts... I use quite regularly masked arrays 
and time series (as ndarray subclasses), and don't want to lose the extra 
information w/ subok=False. But it's all matter of personal goals, I agree.
