Hm. I could have sworn someone on this list said they used the Perl module 
for their PHP implementation. Sorry.

You could have a look at GMP and big_int which are the other two I ended up 
supporting, they're both significantly faster than BCMath and you also have 
the option of leaving the number in its native format instead of having to 
go through the conversion of string->big int->string on every function call.
