SparseQRMatrixQReturnType should inherit EigenBase and provide an evalTo member to be converted to a plain SparseMatrix.
Also, investigate what need to be done to be able to exploit more features of the Householder module.
An evaluation to a plain sparse matrix is provided with this changeset

matrixQ() currently relies on SparseQR_QProduct which is implemented with dense RHS in mind. This makes matrixQ() quite inefficient. The solution is to extend SparseQR_QProduct to handle sparse RHS using the same approach than during the factorization. There is a nice opportunity for code sharing here.
