Thanks for sharing this with us. I think it would make a useful
addition to scipy.sparse, so if there are no objections I'll integrate
it in some form.
Do you actually need the the row and column offset, or would a sparse
analog of numpy's bmat() be more appropriate?
http://www.scipy.org/Numpy_Example_List_With_Doc#bmat
Specifically, would it be preferable to produce your example
A = [A_aa 0 ]
[0 A_bb]
using the interface merge_sparse_blocks currently supports or something like
bmat_sparse( [[A_aa, None],[None,A_bb]] )
We could also provide hstack_sparse() and vstack_sparse() functions
also. Thoughts?
