Comment (by wnbell):

 Sascha, I'm suprised that multiplication would be slower.  When I first
 wrote the CSR * CSR code I tested against MATLAB and the performance was
 comparable.  Are you sure that the matrices you're multiplying are in the
 same format?  Operations of the form CSR * CSR or CSC * CSC or BSR * BSR
 should all be fast.
