Too late, now I'm left with a smoking pile of transistors ;)

But then the user supplied function needs a different format depending
on the size of the ode, right?

for small ode:

  dydt_1, dydt_2, ... = f(t, y_1, y_2, ...)

for large ode:

  f(t, y, dydt)

Hmm, not that nice from the UI design POV.



PS. Do you have performance numbers for C variant with -O3?  I'm
curious how does this compares to luajit.
