Comment (by nslagle):

 The issue with Mickey D's is that we'll probably be out of a job as soon
 as they hire us.  The case in which the user needs to double the matrix
 might not really be an issue; we pass into the class a reference to our
 data matrix defined in the main.  Thus, any user-demanded funny business
 with the matrix conceivably could occur outside of our class object.  At
 some point, we have to trust our users to hang themselves properly.  I'm
 more concerned about the effect of mixing the two styles in our own code
 proper; newer developers might not understand.

 Is this a specific case you've encountered, or is this more a hypothetical
