Matrix.__mul__(self, other) documentation ambiguity

the Python documentation for
If both objects are of type Matrix, multiplies the left hand matrix by the right hand matrix.
Which is very confusingly worded IMHO, since right-handed and left-handed matrices are defined terms, but most likely not what this section is referring to. To avoid ambiguities it should be probably something like this instead:
If both objects are of type Matrix, it multiplies the matrix on the left side of the operator by the matrix on the right side of the operator.
or preferably just :
If both objects are of type Matrix, it multiplies self by other.

Thanks a lot @zipit . I indeed agree and will update the documentation accordingly.
Best and stay safe!
