Shouldn't that be B[i,:] * A? Or am I just confused?

In any event this wouldn't be a problem under row/column scheme or any of
the other results that end up tagging the results with some metainformation.
B[i] would be tagged as a row vector somehow and __mul__ would "do the right
thing" even though it was 1D.
