I haven't done much performance testing because I've been mainly
focussed on accuracy. I just did a quick test of exp() for various
result sizes. For results up to around 50 digits, the patched code was
twice as fast as HEAD. After that the gap narrows until at around 250
digits they become about the same speed, and beyond that the patched
code is slower. At around 450 digits the patched code is twice as

My guess is that no one is actually using it for numbers that large.
