Funnily, it's not needed to give the exact number of c's as long as
there are enough of them. E. g. this seems to work, excuse the hack:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\renewcommand{\matrix}[1]{%
\left(\begin{array}{cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc}
#1\end{array}\right)}
$\matrix{a \\ b}$
$\matrix{a & b \\ c & d \\ f & g}$
$\matrix{a & b & c \\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i}$
\end{document}

You need more c's?

Greetings Hartmut
