I need true matrix-matrix (or rather matrix-vector) multiplication.

That's what it looks like to me. I'm not sure that I like the fact that a vector is a 2d matrix. You should be able to subscript a vector with one index, not two.

Also, limiting to 2 means you can not extend to tensors, which is what I'll be doing shortly.
