Neither did mine ;)

I did find pysimplex, though... But that's not really what I'm after,

Oh, no! 8-|

Hm. Maybe this is a use-case for the new buffer stuff? Exposing the
bytes of their arrays shouldn't be so hard... Easier than introducing
numpy arrays of some sort, I should think ;)

Hm. They support sparse matrices too. Interesting.

Thanks for the tip!
