That's why I suspect that there might be a way to speed it up. On the other hand, bignum packages in C usually work with fixed length arrays (as opposed to linked lists of cells in picoLisp), which make things easier, and a lot more efficient. The picoLisp solution stays with the philosophy "no limits", despite the fact that bignums above a certain size (a few thousand digits?) make no sense.
