I was playing around with some things the other day, writing my function
document, and noticed that we don't need "math.inc" anymore  at least not in
3.8. :)

I just put sin and cos because everyone everywhere knows what that is and I
would hope that most people would assume that it's implied that there's a
degrees  to  radians conversion... But "matrix math" is no different than
"spreadsheet math" or pencil and paper math or chalkboard math.... it's just a
way of laying things out so that the values in the places are operated on by the
appropriate values in the places of other matrices. Or that the formulas for
things like determinants are using the right values. No magic.
It's just an organizational thing to make the notation compact.
Just think about it as: array {Vec.x, Vec.y, Vec.z} and then make a 2D array
with 2 or 3 more vectors....
