[Numpy-discussion] Sparse matrices in NumPy?

I don't know if I am missing something, but:
Let's suppose you have A so that A.shape is (7731,). It is diagonal, so,
obviously, you don't need to save it all. Just a vector.
You also have B, shaped like this: (7731,220)
And you want to multiply A*B (the matrix way).
I would dare to say that what you really need is
C will be shaped as (7731,220), which is what you probably need.
