any news here about the 1x1 matrix treatment?
The current status is:
* If a genr expression "naturally" produces a matrix result, but
the matrix is 1x1, and the user has not forced the issue by
specifying a result-type of "scalar" or "matrix", then we leave
the result as a 1x1 matrix. (As per Stefano's suggestion.)
* But we've tried to make inter-conversion between 1x1 matrices
and scalars (inside genr) more flexible, so that the type of
the result should make less difference to the user.
