Reduced storage in the Jacobian is not the main benefit I'm aiming for.
The solver uses a dense Jacobian storage wise, but can do faster
iteration steps if it knows which parts of the Jacobian are zero or
You are right that using a sparse matrix would probably improve
performance more.

If I understand the autodiff Jacobian correctly, the derivative
functions are calculated at compile time. So would it be possible to
find out which part of it are zero or linear?
