I need only an iterator or something else for a column-major access without duplicating

So you initialize the matrix A_csc which is column-major with a
row-major matrix B_csr, is that the case? So the copy ctor is called,
if this is the case, I tested this and this takes too much time on a
matrix on the order of 100K. I am confused a bit... Can you confirm this?

If I have a thousand ideas and only one turns out to be good,
I am satisfied.
