I just compiled and tested it myself.  On my system it takes only
1/4th the time of the old method for a 1Mx1M matrix with ~5 nonzeros
per row (2D Poisson problem w/ 5 point stencil).  So it's safe to say
it's faster :)

There was a compiler warning about an "unused variable i", but
everything else looks fine. Thanks for your contribution!
