Hi Daniel, good question. I think that yes, a GSoC project focused on
improving sparse matrices and interaction with numpy would be great. But I
also think there's more than enough to do in scipy.sparse, certainly more
than fits in a single GSoC project. So if Izzy or someone else successfully
applies for that GSoC project, I don't see an issue in you working on this
topic but an opportunity to move forward even faster.
Furthermore GSoC doesn't start till 2 months from now, and the application
process is competitive. And the reason this topic was suggested was because
it's important. So by all means, go for it I'd say.
