Description
There was a request on sage-support for the option to change how matrices are displayed, from parentheses to square brackets. William made this suggestion:
How about adding a function to matrix0.pyx that sets a global variable in that file to the left and right delimiters for matrices? sage.matrix.matrix0.set_latex_delimiters('[',']') would set them. That's minimally intrusive. Later on somebody could come up with some grand scheme for customizing latex output, but please don't until there are a few more use cases.
The attached patch implements "set_matrix_latex_delimiters". (I changed the name slightly.)

Thank you! This has been a minor annoyance when using Sage in class, since we use different delimiters than Sage...

You're welcome! I hope it works well for you.
Here's a vector version, too.
