As a brief summary, the ³manage status for all users² functionality will
only work if the user has visited the matrix in question (and generated the
actual data).

What do people think about having this trigger the creation of matrix data

My biggest concern is the performance of creating all that data (if it
doesn¹t exist).  I would expect that the normal use case here is that most
users will have interacted with their matrix by this point.
But, in practice this may not be the case.  I can obviously create a site
with 1000 users, create a matrix, and immediately change the status for all
users (not the same as changing the cell¹s initial status).  This action
will create all 1000 user matrices (well, 999 since the author just went to
the matrix).

The case that isn¹t covered (and I think that it¹s okay not to worry about
it) is when all the statuses have been changed and a user is added to the

So, what do people think about this bulk creation?
