Been puzzling over your last comment, Bruno...couldn't decide what you
meant by "recomputing it". I guess you're speaking of the logical test
to select nonzero elements instead of just a direct use of the logical
addressing vector.

The problem I see with sort() is that I think in the general case the
results could be jumbled since the two matrices are given independently.
AFAICT there's no guarantee the magnitude order would be the same as
the position order in the B array of an arbitrary selection of values in
the A vector. Or, at least, that's my understanding of the OP's quest...
