Hey Deb,

If your goal is to solve the subproblems in ALS, exploring sparsity
doesn't give you much benefit because the data is small and dense.
Porting either ECOS's or PDCO's implementation but using dense
representation should be sufficient. Feel free to open a JIRA and we
can move our discussion there.
