God, some of you guys here are hypersensitive! Who you gooa call? Trollbusters! Actually, I think it is kind of sad that bignums have to be consed all the time instead of being mutable, but it is hard to request non-consing arithmetic operations and the language allows bignums to be passed around without copying, so it is possible that someone may hang on to a value. /// -- In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none. In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
