What if the extant matrix class would continue to be 
available for awhile as "oldmatrix", which you could then 
import as "matrix" if you wished.  Would that meet your 
needs?  (I am simply assuming this would be feasible,
without being sure how a lot of the special casing for 
matrices has been done.)
