In Matlab 2016b, they started displaying some metainfo along with non-double and non-char arrays:

>> A = int64(round(10*rand(3,4)))

A =

  3x4 int64 matrix

    7    7    1    3
    8    7    5    6
    3    2   10    2

>> A = rand(2,3, 'single')

A =

  2x3 single matrix

    0.7513    0.5060    0.8909
    0.2551    0.6991    0.9593

That looks nice to me: generally its important to me whenever something isn't a double.  Should we do this too?
