Me neither unless we know that it's completely useless and would only
complicate the doc.

Even in this case I don't really like the inconsistency with List which
allocates new array if the given one is not sufficient. I think we
either need to choose one of the numbers or do
public double toArray(MatrixArrayType type[, double a)
where MatrixArrayType is an enum with values MAT_2D, MAT_3D, MAT_Full,
requesting 6, 12, 16 numbers respectively. How does that sound?
