Hi Pearu,

Thank you very much for your effort ! It works like a 
Just one comment

The new option is not mentioned in the docstring
and it should be .mtx.gz insead of .mtz.gz  ;-)

  def mmread(source):
     """ Reads the contents of a Matrix Market file 
'filename' into a matrix.


       source    - Matrix Market filename (extensions 
.mtx, .mtz.gz)
                   or open file object.

Thanks again
