Well ... ok::
>>> x = N.array([1,2],dtype='float')
>>> x0 = x
So a "float64 value" is whatever a numpy.float64 is,
and that is part of what is under discussion.
So it seems to me.
If so, then expected behavior and use cases seem relevant.
PS I agree that the posted matrix behavior is "weird".
For this and other reasons I think it hurts the matrix
object, and I have requested that it change ...
