Convert a sage.interfaces.matlab.MatlabElement object

Hi,

I tried the following command to call Matlab to generate a sparse matrix and multiply it with a vector

sage: matlab('rand(3)')*matrix([1,2,2]).T
0.0344    0.7655    0.4898
0.4387    0.7952    0.4456
0.3816    0.1869    0.6463


This is not correct. It seems the multiplication is not done. I'm curious if there is anyway to do the multiplication of a sage.interfaces.matlab.MatlabElement object and a built-in matrix object? Or is there anyway to convert a sage.interfaces.matlab.MatlabElement object to one that can do multiplications with the built-in matrix types? Thanks

Can you just do matlab('rand(3)').sage() to get such a thing? I don't have access to Matlab, but in principle this should work; however, for Matlab it seems to just use a string representation so maybe that wouldn't be enough...
