Interesting examples. Many of them require bit vectors > 32 bits long :)

Most processors are only 32 bits wide, and they seem to manage the algorithms with the bitwise ops :)

That said, is there anything that would actually stop anyone replacing the numeric type with arbitrary precision numbers, assuming they're masochistic enough to bolt it in?
