Original ticket on 2012-02-17 by @pv, assigned to @wnbell.

This behavior should be improved:

import numpy as np
import scipy.sparse as sp
A = sp.csc_matrix(np.identity(5))
B = np.asmatrix(np.ones((5,5)))
print np.multiply(A,A)
# <5x5 sparse matrix of type '<class 'numpy.float64'>'
#   with 5 stored elements in Compressed Sparse Column format>
print np.multiply(B,A)
# NotImplemented
print np.multiply(A,B).dtype
# object

I don't actually follow what happens in the last one --- according to pdb, the execution never reaches csc_matrix.multiply. Instead, one gets calls to csc_matrix.__mul__.

Also, these routines should never return NotImplemented.
