It's true, that does the job. But a direct "X = a | b" would be
more computationally efficient. The version above involves n+1
"unnecessary" transpositions when concatenating n matrices. With
small matrices and a simple script that hardly matters, but it
could make an appreciable difference with large matrices in the
context of an iteration.
