Right, I think this is the right approach.

Here's why I initially didn't realize it was the right approach: i
thought, if we allow Sparse matrices to have an option (via some
template param) to change the index type, then, since the StorageKind
is Sparse in this case, the StorageKind won't be enough anymore.

Here's why it's not a problem: if needed we can let the StorageKind be
a typedef for a templated type, like Sparse<short>, etc.
