Thank you for commenting here.

As you know, I am enthusiastic about seeing an `sparray` equivalent to
`spmatrix`.  When we last spoke, my recollection was that it would be
beneficial to `pydata/sparse`.  Is this still correct?

If not, are we now in a situation where it would be more helpful to
build `sparray` based on `pydata/sparse`.

If we can have a good sparse array API in place in SciPy, it may
significantly simplify code in various other libraries (I'm thinking of
scikit-learn, e.g.).

Best regards,
