Oh, thanks. I have considered pulling some of the math stuff out of the 
library and putting it in an extra gem. There are some algorithms in 
there, that could benefit from being being transformed into a c 
extension as well. On the other hand I was pretty surprised how well 
Ruby did on the numerical stuff and also how much better Ruby 1.9 was on 
the algorithms that iterate a lot.
