Ahoy comrades!

I have written a paper about libzahl.

Too energy efficient to open the PDF and
read the abstract? No worries, here it is:

        This is a technical discussion about the design
        and decisions behind libzahl, a big integer
        library whose goal align with the suckless
        philosophy: simplicity, clarity, and frugality.
        These are not goals of numeric libraries, tra-
        ditionally; they are difficult to combine with
        performance when the performance is dependent on
        algorithms. Is it possible to create a simple big
        number library competitive with the fastest big
        number libraries around?

Proofreading and suggestions is greatly appreciated!

If I can make it to slcon3 (don't know right now),
this is a superset of what I will be submitting for
my proposal. So be aware of potential spoilers.
