> In matrix multiplication, Sparse Matrices can easily turn dense and bloat memory,  one
fully dense column and one fully dense row can cause a sparse %*% sparse operation have a
dense result.  
> There are two issues here one with a quick Fix and one a bit more involved:
>    #  in {{ABt.Scala}} use check the `MatrixFlavor` of the combiner and use the flavor
of the Block as the resulting Sparse or Dense matrix type:
> {code}
> val comb = if (block.getFlavor == MatrixFlavor.SPARSELIKE) {
>               new SparseMatrix(prodNCol, block.nrow).t
>             } else {
>               new DenseMatrix(prodNCol, block.nrow).t
>             }
> {code}
>  a simlar check needs to be made in the {{blockify}} transformation.
>  
>    #  More importantly, and more involved is to do an actual analysis of the resulting
matrix data in the in-core {{mmul}} class and use a matrix of the appropriate Structure as
a result.
