  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.
