So, one should decide if the assignment of dense matrix and sparse vector to
sparse vector is legal or not. In both cases the fix is simple - just
implement
template<typename OtherDerived>
inline SparseVector& operator=(const MatrixBase<OtherDerived>& other)
method. In the later case just add "Not supported" assert. We are ready to
provide the patch for both solutions.

I guess the best method to force a decision here is to file a bug ;)

`My opinion would be that if an expression is dense, it should not be
``assignable to a sparse matrix/vector (as you said, you did this
``accidentally, so a compile-time error would be nice in general).
``For people who really want to assign dense expressions to sparse vectors
``a conversion method could be provided.
