sprand() would be useful however deleterowcol() is too special purpose IMO.
Two comments on your sprand()
1) leads to values outside [0,1) when an (i,j) entry occured more than once.
2) fix(rand()) may be better implemented with numpy.random.random_integers()
With a docstring + unittests this would make a nice addition to
