Subject [GitHub] incubator-spark pull request: [Proposal] Adding sparse data suppor...

Github user MLnick commented on the pull request:
    I for one would prefer to use netlib-java, whether it is via MTJ or Breeze.
    I've used both and find the MTJ API pretty good and with good sparse
    support (though this was a few years ago admittedly). Breeze has a nicer
    more "Matlab" DSL but as I mentioned there's no reason not to wrap MTJ in a
    lighter-weight DSL that is not heavy on implicits, if for performance
    reasons it is desirable.
