| For matrix A = {{e,f},{g,h}} and B = 
{{a,b},{c,d}}, Mathematica returns their product
| A.B = {{ae+cf,be+df},{ag+ch,bg+dh}}
| However, I want to treat multiplication of 
numeric variables as noncommutative in order to 
instead obtain the result
| {{ea+fc, eb+fd},{ga+hc,gb+hd}}
| How would this be done in v5.2?  Thanks.
