### Efficient kernel-computing of sparse GF2 matrices

To compute the kernel of a sparse GF(2) matrix A I simply do

A.kernel()


But for (highly) sparse GF(2) matrices there are (many) much faster algorithm to compute the kernel, surely some of them are implemented in sage, but by which command I apply them? (Tutorial and online help could'nt answer that)
