I think that should be fine (I added them both, didn't I?). One
question: the implementations were both exploiting properties of lil
matrices to be constructed efficiently; is constructing a dia_matrix
and then converting to lil format as good? It seems like a much
cleaner solution, so I hope the answer is "yes"!
