in case memory is not such an issue, the fastest way would be in my
experience to first fill a coordinate_matrix of the correct majority and
then construct a compressed_matrix from the coordinate_matrix. Just use
append_element for the insertion into the coordinate_matrix, else the
constant sorting will kill the performance.

If memory is an issue, you need to sort your triplets first in an efficient
way. Using the coordinate_matrix does basically the sorting for you (it will
be sorted automatically once using std algorithms upon construct the
