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...
